NO WIND | 2011


2011  |  San Diego, CA, USA  |  Two Channel Video with Sound  |  Duration: 5 min 25 sec.loop  |  Edition of 5+2AP

 

 

NO WIND presents a unique phenomenon of human billboards as it appeared in the streets of San Diego, California, spring 2011.
The work re-examining a format borrowed from the language of protest to that of advertisement.

NO WIND

While one channel shows the documented phenomenon, the other shows an 83 years old Cambodian sign holder in a spontaneous monolog,
thus constructing a choreography that bears both poetic and political meaning.
