Emotions in Metal

Rental Format(s): Digital File

Emotions in Metal is an investigative, visual/music work divided into nine vignettes that blend homemade video and music with poetry, performance and computer generated design. The short works link thematically in their investigations into human-vehicle relationships. Whether, performing instructional poetry in the garage, documenting the interiors of strangers' cars or celebrating art world connections to the road, the work balances a playful humor with a critical eye on where society is currently parked.
