1 min Excerpt from Dribbling the Field, 4 min video, sound, dvd video, 2003
Dribbling the Field conflates the action of dribbling in a soccer game with the experience of finding one's way in the city. Clearly, both experiences are distinct in character, but they share a similar set of rules that organize and control the range of activities permitted in their respective fields. What this project proposes is a rearticulation of some of these prescriptive codes. Differently from the soccer player, the city player runs backwards. This simple reversal complicates the experience and reveals the artificial uniformity that stems from the everyday use of the city. It also allows the body to create other rhythms out of its newly gained inadequacy.
