One of Several Moments is a two channel video made in collaboration with artist Steven Lam. The first channel involved creating a script about the lack of interest in political action and general apathy to the state of the economy. The script was read by our parents and included camera pans of family photos and prepackaged photos, found in new frames bought from any generic store. The second channel used a clip from the Cosby show where the plot involved characters boycotting a grocery store for it’s high prices in a low income neighborhood. We re-read the script offering some distance from the (fictional) politics the “Cosby Show” often seemed to explore.
