Video as Suburban Condition
Video as Suburban Condition is a compilation
of videos made with cheap video cameras
and published on the net through channels
like YouTube. They show different suburban
settings shot in hand held video. In
some of them, kids run through fences
at night. In other videos, people on
motorcycles produce as much smoke as
possible by letting their back tire run
in place. Others create rockets from
Coke bottles, ride shopping carts or
dance in parking lots. What these videos
have in common are their protagonists'
performance before a video camera and
the visible anticipation of publishing
the video on the internet.
