Sascha Pohflepp: Power Points of the Far Future

Dortmunder U | 3rd Floor
01/2018

In the series HMKV Video of the Month, HMKV presents current video works by international artists for the duration of one month each. In January 2018 we are presenting the video „Power Points of the Far Future" by Sascha Pohflepp.

Power Points of the Far Future
0:41 Min, 2016

PowerPoints of the Far Future turns the events from Wikipedia's „Timeline of the Far Future" — a list of ridiculously far-off cosmological events — into calls-to-action. Algorithmically generated slides present imagery while statements about various fates are constructed as either futures, the present or modal statements. Presenting a series of increasingly distant events, visions of extinction become farcical futures. (SP)
