Six Fifty

David Askevold

1989, 22:00 minutes, colour, English


This composition is about the hollowness of material wealth, the poverty of alienation and the different forms they take. This concept is mainly represented by two individuals; a middle aged man who `monolgues to an empty chair "(Talking to God)" in a train station. This section is performed by Heath Lamberts. The other section is portrayed by Derik Caines, a painter who grew up in Newfoundland and was living in Toronto when the footage was taped.
