A videotape whose sole audio/video source is The 6th Day, a Hollywood feature film about cloning. WEAKEND subjects Arnold Schwarzenegger to a cruel series of digital replications until the Sabbath arrives, the videomaker rests, and Arnold gets to speak for himself: a desperate critique of self-indulgent video art.

Created for Attack of the Clones at the 2003 Tranz Tech Media Art Biennial; winner of the FAMEFAME jury prize.
