God in Reverse – Exhibition
17 June, 2020
Online video screening program, from Richmond Art Gallery, curated by Mohammad Salemy: God in Reverse: When Wisdom defies Capture. Each artists’ video is available for viewing for a week. Volatile Prophesies on show 17 June–24 June, 2020.
Volatile Prophecies replicates a star field universe with coins from all active currencies today. The camera takes a “random walk” path through the constellations – with each coin spinning in a suspended state of probability. The soundtrack includes fragments of voices in six languages whose words originate from a sentiment analysis dictionary from finance, used in algorithmic processing of human emotions.
