The video is projected on draped 9' x 16’ seamless paper anchored with rocks; an LED crawl is also part of the piece. The video comprises a screen capture of Photoshop glitchiness as I zoom in and out on the tiny location marker shadow JPEG that Google retired in 2013.
The audio is a recording I made as Hispanic workers built a wall to create my studio. The LED crawl compiles quotations from U.S. Supreme Court opinions regarding the fundamental right of interstate travel; see vimeo.com/manage/305131577/general for a brief clip of the crawl.
Part of "The Infrathin" body of work in which the "infrathin" as conceived by Marcel Duchamp and adapted by Kenneth Goldsmith is further extended as a vehicle/pretext for explorations/spoofings relating to location, national and other subsystems and their boundaries, and the apparently fictive distinctions among various dimensions (2-, 3-, 4- and 5-D, etc.). Works in video, print, and other media deploy components accidentally unpacked from an obsolete online map, manifest an interpenetration of elements from meatspace and the virtual world, and/or evince interests relating to the creation and control of essential corporeal and incorporeal infrastructures, among other things.
