Law Of Ruins (Alexander the Great) (2018)

The video ‘Law of Ruins: Alexander the Great’ arose from a general interest in the current portrayal of our past and
especially the Antique, and of ruins as a recurrent fetish.

The focus was how History is constructed and deconstructed through a series of cyclical obsolesence.
This constant burying and re-discovering of our Past produced a collection of endless copies of an original that
seems further away each time.
Or does it? Does latest such as film and 3D imagery allow a different re-enacment and a closer connection?

This video brings together an (archeological) site and a (movie) set, in a fictional excavation of such location.
But what is the purpose here? What does this series of repetition, replicas, recoveries adds to our understanding of
the Event?
