Outer Heavens was an exhibition of videos and objects at the Ottaway Film Center at Bard College in April 2013, completed as a senior project in fulfillment of the Film & Electronic Arts and Experimental Humanities degree requirements. This exhibition was an attempt to use internet search functionality as a proverbial search for meaning.

The objects pictured in the gallery above are water-resistant nude studies made with patio furniture covers from the Veranda Collection by Classic Accessories and Flexpex plumbing hardware.

The videos were grouped into three cycles: Selections From Dream Diary, Places (I Haven’t Been), and My Institutions. Below is a representative video from each cycle. All of the videos are online here.

Maxwell Paparella ’13 majored in Film & Electronic Arts with a concentration in Experimental Humanities.
