Intelligent Design (2007)

The piece surfaces issues of religion, race, humanity and ignorance. The project was inspired by the religious debate between creationism and evolution.

A child plays teacher come newscaster presenting the difference between Neanderthals and Humans. A seemingly random collection of images flashes by in the lower right hand corner of the screen; like those irritating pop-ups on your favorite TV show.

The images were downloaded from a Google search on “intelligent design”. The juxtaposition of the child’s narrative and the images is both hilarious and socially poignant.
