THE DIAMOND (PRINCESS) IS FOREVER

The Diamond (Princess) is Forever
(10"18') is a video installation by Stephanie Misa
James Clar, & Multiple Spirits (Mika Maruyama & Mai Endo)

The Diamond Princess and the Titanic are oracles, mysterious artifacts from a parallel plane foretelling this planet’s future. Have we failed to listen? Will you listen now?

In late January 2020 an outbreak of the Covid-19 started spreading through the Diamond Princess (of the Princess Lines) cruise ship. This response to the outbreak onboard the curse ship became a harbinger of things to come on a global scale.

The Diamond (Princess) Is Forever combines social media footage, news clips, 3D renderings, archival film and various outtakes of the Diamond Princess, and the Titanic. The Vera List Center video screening included a zoom performance of the University of the Philippines Cebu, whilst the HAUS iteration was a video installation in a booth.
