INFLATABLE DAY FOR NITE 2008
<< Inflatable Day for Nite | Selected Video Still 1/8 >>
Ant Farm's Curtis Schreier revives a tetrahedron for a new Inflatable, constructed with students for the Intervene/Intercept Festival at the University of California-Santa Cruz. My film documents the interiors and the tear down. I am interested in the structure as an artifact of latency--desire and time. Kurt Schwitters inside the Merzbau imagined "compressible surfaces capable of dissolving into meshes, surfaces that fold like curtains, expand or shrink".. Between Merzbau 1923, and "Inflatables Illustrated," Ant Farm 1971 = 48 years. Now 38 years later: a latency interval reduced delay of 25%. The timecode compresses at variable rates selected by the software. The surfaces of the inflatable of the same radiant skin as the montage.
