I don't wanna work at Island no more (Hand of God)

HD Video, 04'04", 2021

We are on the roof top of a highrise. A stock trader wearing a motorbike helmet picks up the nerve to jump onto a towering slide, promising a suicidal ride to the ground below. The slide forms a physical manifestation, caught in-between deadpan reality and applied special effects, of Joshua Levine’s blog post of February 11th, 2018, titled "Hand Of God".
