endless live loop / one channel video / 4:3 aspect ratio / 4K / stereo

The work is based on an ancient Greek myth about Cassandra.
The video background shot on 8mm film refers to a silent movie as a counterweight to a livestream of tweets that are represented as the movie’s subtitles. By using selected hashtags the piece becomes an endless gradation of human sorrows from all over the world that is always online.
The specially created computer algorithm transforms the latest tweets with selected hashtags to a video subtitles and then randomizes sound theme using collected data.
