What to do? Part 1 of a Triptych

Christopher McNamara and Dermot Wilson

1992, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


A travel brochure of sorts, an invitation to travel beyond the literal meanings of the narrative and the visuals. The video is comprised of two panoramic images stacked one above the other. In the "crashpoint", that is top left, a baby's face looms gigantic, pure and innocent, the puttee. Starkly contrasted against late capitalist surroundings, she is observing the deserted places of work. Occasionally she looks down at the bottom panorama, a carousel of middle class dwellings. The houses seem to take on a facial character, square and revolving on an endless lazy Susan.
