Roads for Prosperity and Progress

introduction

Originally it was shown at the Rijksakademie open studios with a large photograph (originated at On-Site, London) and a house tent made of african fabric (originated at Teng workshop in Senegal). My work was concerned with the contradictions of  itinerancy, mobility and globalisation.

description

This video is shown in a purpose built box, like a small plywood fridge, and the monitor flickers to life when the door is opened, enabling the viewer to also then close the door on the video. The images come from a brochure picked up at a corporate fair called Intertraffic that i visited while in Amsterdam in 1994. The music is from Jules Mylius, each track is a fragment of a different single in his collection of rare hard core garage/techno.
