Stati d'Animo/60 Seconds/07

Merilyn Fairskye

HDV, DigiBeta, 04:25 mins, Stereo. 04:00 loop.

60 one-second sequences of anonymous travellers captured at 18 airports.

This work invokes the 1911 trilogy of paintings - Stati d'Animo - by the Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni that addressed the mixture of dynamism, chaos, and anxiety of travellers in the modern city of the early 20th century. The international airport replaces Boccioni's railway station as the principal site of human movement. Stati d'Animo/60 Seconds/07 is the final component of a body of work that exists in several forms -- as stills, as cinema projection and as single and multi-channel installations.
