December 31, 2000 is a shot-for-shot recreation of the pivotal scene in Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. Dave is in the process of dismantling HAL, the renegade and recalcitrant computer. On December 31, 2000, Kubrick's apocalyptic dream has not yet been realized. The domestic scene supplants the space station and household appliances are the conduit through which Dave (Johanna Householder) emerges and enters the spaceship in order to render HAL powerless. In an ironic reversal, December 31, 2000 underscores the failure of the future.
