Eye (Gnostic) (2012)


Inspired by the gnostic preface to the bible where from chaos an eye opens and sees the past, present, future of all existence. Using a mirror and a mac book pro in a dark room, the screen's illumination on the mirror is filmed in a feedback loop using the computer's built-in camera. The sound track was simultaneously recorded from the computer's itune playlist. The video highlights the cosmogenic influence of Apple products on the digital native generation. Music: Britney Spears and Merzbow.
