Michael Zansky’s multi media installation, George Washington and the End Times, will reveal a connection between Washington’s 1777 dream of a final battle where America is attacked and defeated. As quoted by Washington, “Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me and pierced and broke into fragments, and a dark clouds enveloped America”. This has been seen by some as a vision of America after a nuclear confrigation. American fundamentalists and others see this as a prophetic vision of our future. The installation will use optical systems, sculpture and video to create a narrative charged with paranoia and irrationality of this age.
