RE Commandments

Repetitive and vibrating loops of images sampled from three sources: the 1955 Hollywood film “The Ten Commandments”, international TV news broadcasts reporting on war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon, and a video documentation of a belly dancer in the desert. The images are synced up to a hardcore techno music track, creating an apocalyptic Middle East horror rave party, revealing the repetition of contradictions and pathologies in Middle Eastern, and generally human, myths and patterns of behavior.
