From the very beginning of the human race, people have been expecting the end of our world. It’s a paradox, but in the last two centuries, in spite of scientific and technological advance, or due to it, there were made more apocalyptic predictions than there had ever been made before.
2012 passed in expectation of calamity predicted by the Mayas.
This project aims to inquire into how our perception of objective reality will alter in the face of factual or imaginary apocalypse. Ordinary walks through the hometown become the quest for signs and warnings of upcoming disaster. Familiar landscapes and situations look weird and dream-like, although nothing terrifying is happening — or is it all just freak of the imagination?
