Installation, Sculpture, Video Installation, Multimedia Installation

This sculptural installation with video projections involves a life-size streetscape in which Atom Egoyan shot his most recent film, "Adoration". The script revolves around a high school student who claims to be a tragic figure from recent history while online, an act that contributes to the creation of a community of people mourning a catastrophe that never happened.

''Adoration' is basically about kids redefining themselves through the internet," Egoyan told the LA Times. "This whole phenomenon of being one personality in school and being able to use technology to create a whole different identity."

The film set involves video projections.
