The Recording Messenger
(US, 1997, video, 1:35)
What happens when opposites meet, when dynamic trajectories combine with immobile objects? In this case a 1930’s airshow stages a flight into a building, depicting the ensuing crash and the inherent danger of such an absurd spectacle. ‘The Recording Messenger’ describes this dynamic agency influencing the static image and the architectural construct represented. There is no explosion but rather a reformulation of boundaries.
