the 6th Day
2004, 09:25 minutes, colour, English
This video was created from an open call for submissions made using the Schwarzenegger film The 6th Day as the sole image and sound souce, allowing for any and all means of manipulation, deconstruction, defibrillation, defenistration, digestion, defecation, re-construction, etc. Using footage from The 6th Day as the only source material results in a revealing display of the artists' proficiency in their medium and their willingness to dismantle and reconfigure without mercy.
While on a simple reading it may seem to be a reflection of postmodern issues of original and copy, authenticity and representation, it is more of an experiment in abstract narrative, an attempt to develop a contemporary language.
