Destroyer of Worlds

"Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds". Tim Berners-Lee talks about the invention of the World Wide Web.

A video/audio mash up made, mostly by time remapping and dub, from a random TB-Lee Interview and the haunted Robert Oppenheimer monologue describing his recollection of the first detonation of the atom bomb.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita: Vishnu was trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says 'now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds'. I suppose we all thought that, one way or another"
