Samuel Chow Plays God

A film still from Samuel Chow's "I'm Feeling Lucky."

“It could be anything and everything. I’m trying not to tell you anything because I’m not telling anyone anything that’s in it,” explains multimedia artist Samuel Chow about his latest work. “That’s the whole point of the project in some ways.”

Titled I’m Feeling Lucky in homage to Google’s search button, Chow weaves video, art and a computer program he created to make a random path network video. The computer program creates a random, non-linear narrative to create a unique experience for each viewer.

“The whole entire piece is kind of an allegory on our virtual existence and how that interrelates in our everyday physical existence. It’s taking on that idea that sometimes you don’t know what you’re going to get when you go online as voyeurs. It’s that sense of unknowing.”
