Serpent Rain, 2016
Horizon Crash, 2016
Serpent Rain is as much an experiment in working together as it is a film about the future.
The collaboration began with the discovery of a sunken slave ship, and an artist asking a philosopher – how do we get to the post-human without technology? And the philosopher replying – maybe we can make a film without time.
The result is a video that speaks from inside the cut between slavery and resource extraction, between black lives matter and the matter of life, between the state changes of elements, timelessness and tarot.
Together we ask: what becomes of the human if expressed by the elements?
Serpent Rain is a collaboration with Denise Ferreira Da Silva and commissioned by Stefano Harney for The Bergen Assembly
