Age of Indifference

There is a line drawn in the sand of our hearts. This moral landscape is divided as a reflection of both subjective content and external context of existence; forming the pretext for our engagement with those realities we engage. Prefigured and preconceived, we measure ourselves alongside the worlds that we shape according to standards though self-determined are nonetheless suggested by the configuration of realism socially conditioned by the affective mediascape.The Age of Indifference (2008) is a dual-channel piece composed as an explosive symphony of fire that follows the structure of the expositional build-up that simultaneously elevates and engrosses the audience in a swelling of emotional fever. In relying upon appropriated footage from films of the epic Hollywood blockbuster genre. This piece affectively activates and maneuvers the audience into a moral dilemma when the borders of the real versus the unreal become blurred with the introduction of media images of “actual events”. The ultimate effect of which is the necessary re-evaluation of our relation to the image at the crux of a moral discourse surrounding guilt and pleasure. It becomes a realization that the division of entertainment and compassion is but a paper-thin contextual footnote.An alternative presentation of this piece outside of a cinema setting would be as a dual-channel installation where on a suspended double-sided screen and In sync with with appropriated visual score, a second HD video of the audience watching the video is projected. Produced by Jon Yu in 2008 in MontrealFormatSingle channel NTSC DV ( DVD)Dual channel HD (Blu-ray)5.1 Surround sound / Stereo Length: 10:26 min.
