Dessert - Disaster (2017) - EXCERPT
HD video, double-channel, color, sound
1 minute excerpt of 3 minutes

A found footage work which compares the parallel cinematic language of dessert commercials with that of 'disaster porn' found in the news and on the Internet. The sound, pulled from various clips of pedestrians watching demolitions, disasters, and storms, expresses "the contradictions of the contemporary crowd: its opportunism, narcissism, desire for autonomy and creation, its inability to focus or make up its mind, its constant readiness for transgression and simultaneous submission" (Hito Steyerl, In Defense of the Poor Image).
