Road to Success

This piece is a video installation, consisting of a looped video (it’s on the DVD), backprojection screen, puppet with wig, a ventilator. The video shows 3 teenagers riding a coastline bus, every now and then, they have to bend down, in order to not to get hit by trees. Naturally, the camera is very shaky. For the installation, there is a puppet in between the projector and the screen. The ventilator is blowing, so that the puppets hair is moving. Viewed from the front of the screen, the shadow of the animated puppet becomes part of the projected video, part of the joyride. (Equally, there could be a real person substituting the puppet.)
