The Megaplex Trilogy reprocesses popular culture gleaning from iconic Hollywood pictures. Marco Brambilla re-contextualizes this imagery into sprawling human narratives presenting a mega-spectacle of highly saturated visual mosaics. With precise technical production and seamless editing, Brambilla's multi-layered tableaux of interconnecting images satirize Hollywood's grandiosity and reduction of historic milestones to cartoonish signpost reflecting cultural iconography at the time of production. The Megaplex Trilogy - Civilization (Megaplex) (2008), Evolution (Megaplex) (2010), and Creation (Megaplex) (2013) - samples cinematic motifs into immersive compositions that engulf audiences within the viewing experience.
