This two-channel work features appropriated news footage from the aftermath of the Gabriel Giffords shooting on the left, while the right channel consists of video of the same shopping center parking lot in Tucson months later, shot in precise replication of the news footage. Compositional elements and landmarks are neutralized in order to emphasize the contrast between spectacle and actuality. Each channel displays matching video of the exact same location, but the two sides are glaringly different. One side displays the conventions of calamity present for such a tragic event, while the other video demonstrates how the site has transformed back into an exceedingly mundane shopping center a relatively short time later. By highlighting the everyday scenes occurring at this location, the ephemeral nature of our contemporary media cycle and its relationship to the images and places which unconsciously endure are considered.
