CALI REPUBLIC (WARNING) previous next
The sense of a transparent flagging over a wound persisted. I became obsessed with the flags, I made many failed montages of flags in all directions, Childe Hassam on a dark day. The flags spun out of control. Another film shot when I scanned it came out all wrong, some algorithm stuck in repeat. Like the flags flying around from too many moves with the mouse, this could prove a productive error on the part of the scanner. Virilio’s machine making images for the machine set out a line of flight or resistance, I set it across the horizontal planes at top and base. Against which, it was evident to push the film shots of the slide, all that velvety not very pixel-savvy slush—a colloidal suspension, just paused momentarily in its push from behind the back of the image out into the real volume in which I stand, not one nation under God. Cali, my republic.
