The Darths of Perception

Recently I finished a video project which I intentionally spent about 8 months on.
It was a diary as well as a meditation on the concepts I've been looking into for the last year.

The best way I can think of to describe it is as a narrative, video collage, tone poem, meditation on the current condition of the collective human consciousness and our future.

A friend of mine describes it as "an operatic master mash-up".

The philosophy behind the concepts are informed by ancient Kabbalah.
As well as 19th & 20th century philosophers, and 20th century sic-fi authors such as Arthur C. Clarke.
All constructed by using similarly themed clips from the films of Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas, the Wachowski brothers, David Cronenberg, Woody Allen, etc. with a little help from The Beatles.

Thank you to for graciously hosting my video for streaming.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to point you to MK Ultrasound's latest video:

We both finished our videos around the same time. And though we both knew the other was working on a video, neither of us saw the other's before completion. So it's interesting and uncanny to say the least how stylistically and thematically similar they are.

In joy!
