I Was Born Ten Thousand Years Ago

 

Inspired by the utopian vision of Ontario Place, an abandoned amusement park in Toronto, this sound installation fills a 1971 Cadillac with distorted samples of music from that year. The sense of optimism from that era is contrasted with a spiritual void and the narcissistic and nihilistic character of much of the late 20th century popular/consumer culture.
