Some Sign Pt2
Posted by <Anna Eisenman> on 2022-02-15
Some Sign pt. 2 is the second part of a two-part essay video series exploring superstition. Positioned at the intersection of two early 2000s media events, this work traces the psychodynamic narratives of the artist's first site of apocalyptic and prophetic thinking.
Just as technology and industry undergird the image of the world, paranoia and magical thinking emerge from a generational metaphysique of children's media and post 9/11 spectacles of catastrophe. Am I psychic? Can I sense when I will die? Am I nothing but material movements and modifications?
This work explores boundaries between fact and fiction, memory time and historical time, and images’ roles in constructing our personal cosmologies.
