Traffic #1: Our Second Date

2004, Installation with video projection

Each of these tabletop miniature kinetic sculptures involves two linked narratives. In Second Date, one harrative is a small-scale recreation of a scene from the film Week End by Jean Luc Godard. The other is a tableau portraying the artists themselves in the act of watching the film on a small- screen: a live video feed of the cinematic recreation appears on their screen. In the gallery space, a video sequence cuts back and forth between images of the artists in their viewing environment and images of the film scene they are watching. All of the films involve car culture and its portrayal in cinema.
