Civilization by Marco Brambilla (featuring Crush)

Although I am not a believer in a literal hell, this video installation is quiet interesting.  Installed in the elevators at the Standard Hotel in New York City, the installation is a direct reference to Dante’s Divine Comedy and consists of over 400 video sources.  One experiences the installation while riding in the elevators which ascend into heaven as the elevators move upward or descend into hell as the elevators moves downward.
