IMMORTALITY, HOME AND ELSEWHERE
Speculative theories on immortality and the end of the Universe combine with personal history’s brushes with global nuclear disasters, 90s Apocalyptic films invade domestic spaces, and tourism competes with google street view in this meditation on the speed of information, individual and collective memory, and individual and collective fear of individual and collective death. What if you could be everywhere at once?
