Ultimately everything is an interpretation of a reconstruction.
Paleontology of the future is necessarily a reconstruction and interpretation of the present and our interpretation of the past as seen through the templates of a future ideology. The quest for new narrative forms, the investigation into the way we derive meanings, whether intended or not, determined the form of this work. Sound - Sean Reed
Original Format – Blu-Ray HD
One meaning or many meanings? But not any meaning! A field of meaning. Better. Intended meaning? Yes, but not compelling. Conventional meaning? Definitely not. Is this a narrative? Yes, but new narrative has infinite possibilities for the viewer to collaborate with the author. It isn't finished after one reading.
Digital Technology is a narrative, a description of the world which reassures us that if its broken, we can fix it. Digital technology describes and imitates the world on one hand and on the other it offers us an alternative virtual paradise now. This is the second part of a small trilogy, starting with Things Fall Apart.
Ghosts require ghost money. I suspect they have the same vices and obsessions as their living descendants. This work is the counterpart to How Technology Saved the World. When technology fails, we can fall back on the ghosts of ancestors to save us. Double indemnity.
