Mickey Yang – transcendental sprawl

<p>Transcendental sprawl satirizes the spoiled and fragmentary glances into the hyperreality that is projected onto our globalized, post-capitalist society, tricking the viewer like a magician. The video evolves around the questions concerning our capability to (still) experience our own ‘nature’, the open minded gaze of our childhood. Just in case, this shouldn’t be seen as a sentimental ambition. Instead of merely proposing a cleansing ritual, Yang offers us something that is as alien as it is banal, humorous and serious, bringing something new and perhaps returning something lost as well.</p>
