Untitled Video Series
[After working on this for 3 years, I’m currently taking a break from this project]
This as yet untitled video series will eventually consist of 189 videos of less than a minute each. The 189 number is in relation to the number of spells in the ancient Egyptian “Book of the Dead”. All though the first part of this series will revolve around ancient Egyptian iconography and myths. Future parts will delve into other ancient cultural mythologies and Icons(Hindu, Norse, Persian, Maya…etc.). with a strong possibility of some crossover near the end of the series. These videos will focus on examining several philosophical works related to Language, Text, Structuralism, and Deconstruction. The conceptual sparks for this comes from my recent readings of Jacques Derrida’s “Of Grammatology” and “Writing and Difference”, Marshall Mcluhan’s “The Gutenberg Galaxy”, James Joyce’s “Finnigans Wake”, as well as several lectures about Language and Literature by Michel Foucault. This list will undoubtedly expand as well considering the amount of time this project will probably take(4-5 years maybe). All though I plan on sequentially numbering these in Roman numerals as they come out, they do not need to be viewed in any sequential order. And they should be able to either be viewed individually, and/or randomly grouped. Ideally these should be viewed in 4K resolution.
