Dessert - Disaster - EXCERPT
HD video, double-channel installation or single-channel screening, color, sound
1 minute excerpt of 3 minutes 54 seconds, 2017-2018
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 pedestrian-produced videos of demolitions, disasters, and storms, expresses the contradictions of the contemporary crowd; its insatiable appetite for destruction and arousal; its inattention, its inability to look away; its anxiety and its ecstasy.
