We're All Here (2016) by Beny Wagner
We're All Here

We're All Here

In We're All Here artist Beny Wagner channels feelings of inexplicable loss and yearning for something unknown. The film builds on two seemingly unrelated material histories: that of camouflage and fossil fuels. Camouflage as the human desire to subjugate the landscape to its demands while simultaneously yearning for a complete immersion in its materiality. Petroleum as the great global unifier that paradoxically makes things in immediate proximity stand at an irreconcilable distance. The film attempts to translate the ungraspable global end into an internalized, uncertain relationship to the self.
