One part of a multi-part video piece dealing with endurance. The video was exhibited at the SVA Gallery in SoHo, New York, in the spring of 1998. In the installation, a TV-monitor was placed on a pedestal facing the gallery entrance with a one inch wide white strip of paper leading from the front door, along the floor and up the pedestal till the monitor. On the paper strip, which was several feet long, the hand-written line "I'm sorry" was repeated for its entire length.

This video is comprised of a collection of cheeky cheerleading performances. From a document accompanying one of the videos: "'It's angry but it's a celebration.' Using the American myth of cheerleading, it raises ambiguities about religion, men, organizations and women's definition of themselves. But it is designed to be entertaining rather than didactic." Transferred by XFR Collective in 2019 from VHS. Created by Lee Williams and Angela Anderson. Other contributors include Alexei...

While a student at School of Visual Arts, Malin Abrahamsson spent a day at the corner of Wooster and Grand Streets in SoHo, New York, selling assholes to pedestrians. The assholes were sculptures made in art class and got their name by another student who was offended by the shape of the objects. ("This isn't art - these are assholes!") The comment triggered the idea to peddle these objects/assholes as a test to see if they could function and be appreciated as art despite being called...

In a succession of hand-processed still and moving images, two characters walk, run and gaze across an industrial-looking street-end over which trains pass constantly. No motivation is given for their actions, nor is any definitive direction or conclusion reached. Rather, by only slightly varying repetition of actions and sounds relating to leaving the frame, attention is focused on the nature of the framed image and our imaginative impulses to believe in a "world" beyond the film...

Comedy b/w. Bearded bespectacled Mitch is the science professor and Jim Sutcliffe the magician who spouts sorcery, two opposite poles of thought and reason. Also Sally White narrates off-camera from a psychology textbook, and the three speakers' audio is mixed naturally in our speech, voices cascading over each other. At the end, Mitch and Jim shed their characters and speak in their own voices.
