Outdoors / AGOD
AGOD (Acronym for animated gif of the day) is an organic horror movie about the terror of entropy. It is organic video in the sense that it has no solid state. The practice of working has progressed itself. At first, a layer was added onto this video every day for three years. I considered the completion of a daily animation part of a meditation practice. Currently, a new layer is added onto this video after every exhibition, like a stamp on a passport. The same version of this video will never be exhibited twice. As the video continues to grow in visual complexity, the form itself retains less actual meaning. The evolution of the video allows me to experience the signal being lost in noise. The inevitable entropy of the aging mind parallels the decay of the accelerating universe and the speed of information in the digital age.
