I made this video as part of a project called Bulk Bin as part of The Big Rock Candy Mountain Residency at The Banff Centre for The Arts in 2003. Everyday I would broadcast a new video on line, mimicking the production pace of television (sort of). All the work is on video and shot and edited in a quick and dirty way.
In the Town of Banff they must have 50 candy stores on the main street. They sell these little candy deer. Banff is a National Park and so the real dear are all around you, and the stuffed and mounted ones too. I played with the images of the deer and idea of anthropomorphism in this piece. The sound track really up the ante on that.
trivia: The music is by Cat Power. People think it's me and I would love that I really would, but it's Cat and I love her more.
