A Guide To: Effective Implementation of Self-service (2017)

3 min 2 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"A waving car yard air-dancer named Crystal in a car sales yard is paired with an adapted family meditation.

"Under the guise of ‘double agent’—defined as having a day job (at a luxury car dealership)—that feeds into her art practice, this project investigates how shared spaces are becoming sites for communal isolation. The works attempt to champion artistic spirit into the work environment, in a bid to overturn the conventional hierarchies of dominant language, and the value attributed to it. A well-being cheerleader of sorts."
