Jeremy Shaw - Quantification Trilogy Reader
|Publisher||Information Office/ Vancouver|
This unique book of cinematic stills printed on crisp, black pages accompanies several of Jeremy Shaw’s exhibitions held between 2018–2021. Concerned with the shape of future societies, ‘The Quantification Trilogy’ itself examines fringe culture, theories of evolution, virtual reality, neurotheology, esotericism, dance, the representation of the sublime, as well as the notion of transcendence itself. The trilogy comprises parafictional short films: ‘Quickeners’ (2014), ‘Liminals’ (2017), and ‘I Can See Forever’ (2018). The works are set in the future and explore how marginalized societies confront life after a scientific discovery has mapped and determined all parameters of transcendental spiritual experience.
