A found footage work which compares the parallel cinematic language of dessert commercials with that of “disaster porn” found in the news and on the internet. The sound, pulled from pedestrian-produced videos of demolitions, disasters, and storms, expresses the contradictions of the contemporary crowd: its insatiable appetite for destruction and arousal; its inattention; its inability to look away; its paranoia and its ecstasy.
