Vancouver Film School students Marcos “Boca” Ceravolo and Ryan Uhrich came up with an interestingâ€”and entertainingâ€”premise for their final project in the Digital Design program. “Duelity” tells the creationist’s version of the beginning of the universe using the language of science while simultaneously presenting a scientific cosmology using biblical lingo.
It’s a fun experiment that shows just how much the language we use can influence the way we present and receive ideas. Personally, I found the creationist’s view much more palatable when presented in this way. I’m not sure what that says about me, but it does point to the power of diction, the power of carefully chosen words.
You may recall that Boca and Ryan worked on another interesting project, “Typographics.” I hope they continue collaborating; they seem to have great creative chemistry.
