“Pretty Knowledge” (2012), is a dual-channel video work which takes after a segment of a video, popular on the internet, of a certain French seer who relates his predictions for the future. In one, he directly uses the video documentation of this “seer” predicting various major events due to happen after 1980; in the other video, myself plays the role of this seer and re-enacts his predictions with an imitation French, mimicking his French intonation and body language.
