This large scale video mapping installation taking place in an abandoned neo-gothic church questions the procession of symbols and simulations making up our post-modern human experience. Like a map with no territory, these symbols hint at the existence of a hyper-reality, while quite possibly the true essence of reality becomes increasingly hermetic, crumbling and decaying from disuse. Now that the simulation proceeds the original, is the modern experience of beauty, divinity and love merely alienating us from the true essence of these qualities?
"Simulacra" was created by Ryan Uzilevsky and produced by Light Harvest Studio and Bobby Redd. The work features sound design by Brandon Wolcott and Sky White Tiger. With visual fx collaborators Whitney Alexander, Kevin Bleich, and Jon Seagull. Additional art direction by Chris Pugliese.
You can see the video mapping by attending either Friday or Saturday night events. Please make sure to get tickets that offer entrance to these events.
