i always wake up w a blanket of 7 eleven wrappers covering my limp hungover body and am super depressed about my life..i get up, write down a list of goals, call my dad-tell him i love him, clean the beer bottle out of my sink, decide to put on a fresh pair of bvd's instead of just turning them inside out... and get ready for a new start...
but before that i check the nerd and totally get lost, wasting the entirety of my day watching amazing shit like this:
The Great Melt is a video that shows the destruction of an alien landscape as set off by one person's actions. Through the lens, sculpture mutates into video through the bending of material and sculptural relationships.
The narrative follows a creature through a toy-arch cave. The creature then arrives in a circular golden room with a glowing orb at its center. Once attaining the orb, the room is sent in a spiraling motion that release the orb onto the creatures home planet and melts away its contents.
The work harkens back to early cinema in its technique while the content resides in the present. Our world can change dramatically from the actions of one, actions that are at once motivated by the fear, and the awe of consequence.
