The Human Condition
digital video 8min. 2016
Ideas about how we live in the world as humans, the difficulties faced, the conditions of our brief existence, accompany us consciously or unconsciously, overtly or subliminally as we go about our daily lives. The video quotes images from art and film and texts from various philosophies to conjure the fraught and beautiful condition of being alive.
The human condition has been thought, written about, and imaged throughout history: Aristotle, Lucretius, Hobbes, Arendt, Magritte - among others.
This video samples some of the thoughts and images that swirl around us and through us as we live conditionally embodied in the here and now.
