New Mythologists: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a site-specific installation and performance that moves beyond memory, beyond recollection, to strive for new possibilities. What happens to this end-of-the-world myth when it fails to deliver what it has promised? Can we rearrange and repurpose it to suit the needs of the new millennium?

This work creates a world of new myth through which the viewer is better able to analyze and understand the predominant influence The Corporation has over our visible and invisible day-to-day realities. What was once controlled by organized religion has been usurped by The Corporation. No longer is the end game salvation. Now it is consumption and personal profit. The New Mythologists series will not only focus on heightening awareness of The Corporation’s control but will also offer brief glimpses of hope for a world not dominated by The Corporation; mythology usurped by the people.
