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.
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.
