Himmel og helvede
“Civilisation” , af Marco Brambilla, er et moderne vægmaleri installeret i elevatoren i the Standard Hotel i NY. Alt efter om man kører op eller ned, så panorerer filmen tilsvarende mellem Himmel og Helvede – kedeligt at bo i kælderen, haha!

The film illustrates a contemporary and often satirical take on the concepts of Heaven and Hell. A metaphysical journey from Hell to Heaven, ‘Civilization (Megaplex)’ is portrayed by computer altered found footage. The journey begins under Kurosawa’s “Dreams” volcano, then rises through a purgatory populated by images of suburbia, demolition derbies and shopping malls, finally soaring towards a paradise of beauty contestants, cherubs, bodybuilders, then past the peaks of Mount Olympus to a cosmic portal inspired by Gustav Dore’s paintings, as reinterpreted in the movie, “The Fountain”. ‘Civilization (Megaplex)’ is an epic video mural containing over 500 individual channels of looped video into a multi-layered seamless tableau of interconnecting images”.
