Exodus (Hollywood Scene)2017
'Exodus' is an ongoing video work in progress. Following on from my previous video work, 'Obsolete' this work pokes fun at Hollywood disaster movies and features miniature movie sets that have a Blue Peter Tracey Island feel, as well as the generous use of cheesy special effects.
For a number of years my practice has explored themes of dystopia, and this stems from my interest in science fiction. Man’s reliance on technology has often brought about failure, sometimes due to the arrogance of the creators. Inspired by both H G Wells' 'The Time Machine' and Isaac Asimov's 'The God's Themselves', 'Exodus' tells the story of a technological catastrophe that has brought about the demise of our sun.
The finished work will feature a number of scenes across multiple screens. The images shown here are from the Hollywood set that has been built in the studio, and are still very much a work in progress.
