You Never Know How the Past Will Turn Out

Wading through light research on every god-relayed mythology in the form of a video, digital book, and prints

A video navigating a set of answers about God. The video presents conflicting exterior and interior frames, along with conflicting audio and a barrage of philosophical text and personal rumination. The interior frame is a book generated using every image from the Wikipedia pages for ‘Deities’ and ‘Gods’. The videos filling the exterior frame are the most popular free stock videos available on a high-quality royalty-free stock video website, acting as a sort-of catalog for humanity’s current cultural moment. The texts adorning the top and bottom frame are two separate streams of consciousness, changing with each page turn of the interior frame book. The top slowly reveals text from the articles the images are from, while the bottom offers personal and very individual reflections.

Random frames from the video are printed and exhibited as needed!
