10 iteraties

In art, video on January 10, 2013 tagged , , by Erik

Last december, just before holiday madness, Epix opened again. The exhibition, themed “The End”, opened on december 21 and dealt with the apocalypse.

My work, called 10 Iteraties (10 Iterations), shows 10 iterations of a short clip of Robert Oppenheimer saying “I am now become Death, the destroyer of Worlds”, more severely distorted with every iteration. I used several databending techniques to generate the video.

The full title, kālo’smi lokakṣayakṛtpravṛddho lokānsamāhartumiha pravṛttaḥ, is the phrase from the Bhagavat Gita in original Sanskrit.
