Handgame for Artists, Politicians, Egotists and Solipsists (2016)

3 min 3 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

"Handgame for Artists, Politicians, Egotists and Solipsists was a video undertaken as one of the video works for my undergraduate BFA degree at Elam (in 1974). I wanted to make a public interactive video and when it is installed a chair is placed before the monitor so that visitors can play the Handgame (paper, rock scissors) with the protagonist (me). We are all APES :)"
