Welcome to earth 2...
Although, it might be any earth. There are a lot of them. Did you know that? They all exist at the same time and place, just in different dimensions. It’s true, sort of. Well, it’s a theory. Wait- scratch that. Theories are tested. It’s a concept, at any rate. People have written stories about it before.
The idea of there being alternate dimensions exsisting at the same time as our own is all over works of fiction. I discovered this idea while reading comics. I liked it. I ran with it. I made it my own.
The following is an exploration into what it is like when you see me get into situations in which i’m forced to deal with myself, literally. Some situations are meant to be comical, some are outlandish, and others just are what they are.
The process in which i made each photo is not all that difficult to recreate. I had a tripod, a camera, and me.
I took several pictures of a single angle and in each picture i was doing something different. The tripod kept the camera steady, the camera recorded, and i acted it out.
Each version of me acted and reacted differently, because the only thing each version of me has in common is my face. Every individual has a mind of it’s own.
The chris of earth 1 will carry himself very differently than the chris of earth 17, and the chris of earth 58 has nothing in common with the chris of earth 267.
What i want you to take from this is a hightened sense of awareness of your surroundings. Whatever situation you happen to find yourself in, ask yourself. What would i be doing if i were on earth 2...?
