Tad Mol, The Inventor of the Letter G

2021, HD video, 00:04:18
Tad Mol, The Inventor of the Letter G shows a couple fighting in their living room when they are suddenly interrupted by a commercial for a shamanic energy drink. They decide to make a pilgrimage to the shaman to imbibe the mysterious beverage. Once they consume it, they take on different stylistic forms and go on a short adventure through a mechanical universe created by the shaman.

The shaman inhabits a satirical “renaissance-man” space. He knows Tai Chi, lives in a hut on a hill and also runs a mystical energy drink corporation from his home. At some point, according to the title of the piece, he also may have had something to do with the invention of a letter. It’s funny to think about someone actually inventing the letter ‘G’, or any letter of the alphabet. The more information that envelops our lives the easier it is to forget that there is an evolution of human actions and labour and ideas creating almost everything we see and experience in civilization. Every bit of an object or information has stories or emotions behind it that are totally forgotten and oftentimes claimed or manipulated by those who probably didn’t have much of a role to play in them. Music by Chris Parrello.
