Final project for ARTD 379. We were instructed to shoot two videos, one focusing on a subject matter we are resistant to, and the other focusing on something that appeals to us. I combined them into one. American television, advertisement, social constructs, and the general idea of relaxation/free time is juxtaposed with wilderness, the cold night air, and skateboarding - one of the the few escapes, one of the few constants.
Title images taken from Corey Smith's "Digital Detritus" (vimeo.com/31228083)
Audio: "Trapped In A Burning House" by Shlohmo, edited for the film.
No infringement intended, no profits made.
I took pieces from projects by artists that inspire me.
Fuck the free world.
Repetition is used to emphasize corrosion. We sit complacent and vacant, concerning ourselves with meaningless activities while the world crumbles beneath us. Footage taken from October 17, 1989.
