What’s the Worst that Can Happen? is an abstract reflection on our inability to control time and how it shapes our lives. As a species, we can try to prepare for the future with education, career paths, who we spend time with, and who we love. Ultimately we can only do so much, as fate, God, the Dharma, luck, whatever decides how our lives will unfold. What’s the Worst that Can Happen? uses different iconography to portray time, progression, and waiting. Other assets in the video are from projects and ideas that failed to come to fruition. These assets symbolize the impossibility of foreseeing the future and controlling our personal destiny. My intention is to create a fluid composition that encompasses the randomness of everything that exists in linear time and how that time forms the content of our lives.
