Alan Butler: On Exactitude in Science

29. April – 1. Mai 2022

Can We Truly Think About Climate Change At All?

Part one of a three-part series on how philosophy contends with our possible annihilation. By Tom Whyman

Alan Butler’s 2017 video installation, “On Exactitude in Science,” is one of the most remarkable things I’ve seen in the last few months. The work consists of two screens. On the left plays Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out Of Balance, the 1982 stoner classic of slow motion and time lapse footage of cities and landscapes; complete with pulsing, shimmering Philip Glass soundtrack. On the right: Butler’s shot-by-shot remake, in which he has — somehow, marvelously, painstakingly — reproduced the film in its entirety by modding Grand Theft Auto V.
