“People this 2012 shit is hype” is a conversation about the end of the world.
Assembled from YouTube comments from videos about the 2012 phenomenon, “People this 2012 shit is hype” is a collection of fears and philosophies about the stakes involved in the vanishing of the human race. Based on numerous spiritual, mathematical, scientific, and apocalyptical readings of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, December 21, 2012, is an important date where diverse eschatological beliefs are said to culminate.
“People this 2012 shit is hype” is the second in the COMMENT COLLECTION project, exploring the power of the viewer to tell and re-tell stories.
«People this 2012 shit is hype» sera présenté au FIFA 2011, dans le cadre de Panorama de la vidéo québécoise et Canadienne, commissaire Nicole Gingras. Les dates du festival : 17 au 27 mars 2011.
