Rob Carter
Foobel (An Alternative History)

2005, 8:56 min. (video, color, sound)

This video was made in direct response to political arguments over the construction of new sports stadiums, both in the US and UK. Most famous to New Yorkers was last year’s fiasco surrounding the Jets stadium proposed for the west side of Manhattan. This animated video refers more directly to the English game of football, but creates a brief absurd history of the evolvement of the stadium from playing surface to ‘Babel-esque’ monstrosity. It is a satire of the need for bigger and bigger stages of any popular type of theatre at the expense of everything else. However it conflates the greed and absurdity of the issues with the thrill of the game and the epic religiosity associated with it.

A Kodak Recall
2004, 8:02 min.
(video, color, sound)

The opening scene of this animation shows a massive recall of cameras and film to the Kodak factory in Rochester, NY. Out of thousands of lost or unfulfilled photographs, the scene literally opens up into a semi-narrative journey depicting a camping trip gone awry. These found photographs were brought to life using stop-motion animation in order to alter and usurp their original meaning, whilst emphasizing the three-dimensionality of the paper itself. By literally cutting, twisting and bending the images and adding sound, they take on a quietly absurd narrative that transports the viewer from one environment into the next, whilst never escaping the simplicity and frailty of the illusion. Though video is itself a transient medium, this video focuses on that transience through the process of unraveling material still images, emphasizing their physical instability and their perceptual malleability.
