Player Piano Player

Player Piano Player (5 m 20s)

Player Piano was my response to the implications of having everything run by little boxes. The idea of doing that, you know, made sense, perfect sense. To have a little clicking box make all the decisions wasn't a vicious thing to do. But it was too bad for the human beings who got their dignity from their jobs. - Kurt Vonnegut


Greenscreen (or, How Not To Be Seen: Cliff Thorburn vs Hito Steyerl)

Greenscreen reworks footage of Cliff Thorburn playing the first televised 'perfect frame' at the World Snooker Championships in 1983. It uses the baise as the site for a post production disappearing act, rendering the performer and supporting cast as the only things visible.
