Installation with video (6:31 min, Full HD) and posters (42 x 59 cm), 2022
Fast & Furious is one of the most successful film series of all time. Writer Joshua Gross is positively obsessed with the franchise about auto-tuning, family conflicts and CGI explosions. For Tegel Media he has written an essay and a fan fiction about his favourite cinema content.
Me and Karin Kolb presented our specific view of Fast & Furious in a walk-in video installation. We created an uneasy and disturbing remix video of the F & F movies that draws from an uncanny valley moment. This is because Paul Walker, one of the movie‘s actors, died during production and was replaced by CGI. Additionally, we created a poster series featuring AI generated bumper stickers – with prompts made out of Joshua‘s (witty) text.
