The Great Dragon Consumes All
Single Channel Video, 2018
The Great Dragon Consumes All is an experimental video collaboration between artist Jason Bernagozzi and composer Bryce Wemple. The dragon as a symbol for prosperity in eastern cultures is transformed by western capitalism into metaphor for greed during the year of the dragon celebrations at various shopping centers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The repetition of forms through the frame buffer processing is used to critique consumer culture as a hollow signifier of human values, a way to feed the economic elites that hoard their wealth and devour all.
