THE 5 MINUTE APOCALYPSE – GLOBAL EDITION, 2021
Following Nam June Paik's work TV Buddha, multidisciplinary artist Dennis Rudolph (Berlin, 1979) creates a digital work of art for your living room. It turns your own computer screen into a digital altarpiece. Scan the marker on the Oude Kerk website (look for 'home apocalypse') and seven messengers of the AI, all painted by Rudolph in a VR 3D painting program, will choreograph around your monitor to the music of Baroque composer Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, eventually shattering on your smartphone to make room for the gigantic figure of 'Europa' entering your home through the monitor.
Record and share your experience with the camera button in the app and post it on Instagram using #homeapocalypse. Oude Kerk will collect all the videos and combine them in a feed. With your publicly shared videos you will help to complete this artwork and become part of a kaleidoscope which is truly global.
