Van LaPointe

1990, 10:37 minutes, colour, English


This video is a fast-paced montage of images obtained from the mainstream media. The rapid pace of the editing serves as a metaphor for a certain social violence, for the chaos of life itself. The existing frame is constantly challenged in that the work is multi-levelled, self-referential, and ironically narrative. The entropic nature of the narrative and the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated images allows the viewer to rethink the relationship between experimentation and narrative form.
