The Day After, Tomorrow

The Day After, Tomorrow

Earthquakes, fires, floods, meteors, air attacks and other doomsday scenarios play on a bank of twenty video monitors. The exhaustive cataloguing amasses a near-comprehensive collection of disaster cinema tropes. 

The clips are arranged geographically, so that the viewer may watch the rapture arrive around the world simultaneously. Tidal waves hit shores, landmark buildings are destroyed, and general panic ensues. 

Isolated from any larger context, the apocalypse plays out like fireworks, and the utopian social cooperation that typically follows in catastrophe cinema is unseen, as the clips loop back onto themselves.
