Inflatable Deities


Inflatable Deities is the collaborative duo of Jessica Mensch and Emily Pelstring. 

The projects developed are expanded fictions in which stories unfold over various media, such as video, installation and performance art.

About the artwork

Mourning of the Living Past is a twenty-five-minute time-travel sci-fi film integrating live performance, video and music. 

In their distorted and psychedelic style, the artists take on the personas of scientists in order to realize what this far distantly future society has become. 

This dystopian project brings together speculative fictional technologies, surrealist body horror and experimental vocal work to express contemporary apprehensions concerning sociopolitical regression.
