Belief is made from information found entirely on the worldwide web. In thirteen minutes, this work presents a series of fragmented broadcasts about belief, all sourced from the video sharing community YouTube.
As a two-screen installation, the compass floor projection interacts with the montage showing where each clip originated in relation to the geographical location of the artwork. With a little help from Google Earth viewers are placed at the centre point of this cinematic data visualisation.
Belief is the final work in the Flat Earth Trilogy following on from Flat Earth (2007) and A short film about War (2009/2010). Supported by Creative Scotland's Vital Spark programme, New Media Scotland's Alt-w Fund, ATLAS Arts and Animate Projects.
