SUPREMATIST KAPITAL

by Yin-Ju CHEN & James T. HONG
2006 / Mini DV / color / sound / 1S / 5' 00




A Symbolic History of Kapital.
Inspired by Kasimir Malevich's minimalist artworks and the struggles for resources in the age of peak oil, Suprematist Kapital was born of the want to create a visual artwork that could be displayed on many different-sized mediums regardless of resolution, e.g., theater screens, mobile devices, ipod's, etc.
Where once technology as progress was an end in itself, it became the handmaiden of capitalist accumulation and war, and is now a form of capital itself in the age of peak oil.
