On April 7th Tom Estes showed his installation STORM at the event 'Video Is The Only Constant' at Corsica Studios. Later in the evening Estes discussed his practice as an artist and his video installation shown on the night with curator Chrisina Millare. Estes' video work, STORM is a true companion piece to his existing practice of borrowed elements in the creation of a new work. Recently previewed at the Whitechapel Galleries 'Open Screening' in London, STORM deals with the Biblical tale of Noah and the Ark- in the style of the Keystone Cops on acid. 

The work, while being projected onto a Bible, also references the Wizard of OZ. The Bible is open on the page of the account in Genesis 6-9 which details how God sends a great flood to destroy the earth because of man's wickedness and because the earth is corrupt. Estes’ choice of projecting fast-motion slapstick comedy directly onto the Biblical text is a deliberate mitigation of surrealist shock. The speeded action alters the tone of what seems a traditional childrens story- but with the mad attention urges of a Play Station gamer.
