Nathan Abels, Omne Ignotum Pro Magnifico (every unknown thing appears magnificent), 2017

History of the Future by Nathan Abels embeds contemporary technologies and icons into scenes from a perspective of faith, ritual and religion. These works ask the viewer to assume the role of anthropologist - to decipher the significance of the narrative: what is the significance of the natural world and its characters, any spiritual and religious aspects, and ultimately how these correspond with the celestial?
