Kent Tate: RUPTURE Preview - Single Channel movie. Moving Images & Music: Kent Tate 10:00

By and large humans tend to create narratives about themselves, then often make great effort to conform reality to that narrative. This was not a threat to planetary survival 10,000 years ago when we were scattered in small bands worshipping local deities and relying on nearby gathered foodstuffs with only stone tools. It is quite an other thing when we are packed into mega-cities with nuclear weapons, and ambiguous connectivities, along with relationships imbued in instruments that far exceed an individual's capacity to fully comprehend or to realibly navigate our various systems.
