[TISEA 1992] Artist Statement: Bob Last – And. Then.

Artist Statement

Laserdisc multi-monitor installation

The piece consists of two 70cm video screens, one viewed through a 850mm x 720mm aperture of fluorescent orange ripstop nylon, and the other through papier-mache aperture culled from the pages of an illustrated encyclopedia.

Each screen presents part of a larger than lifesize face. A young boy and a middle-aged man peer out at the world and away from each other. A blurred landscape passes behind them.
The two fragmentary video portraits are cycled off laser discs, allowing a high resolution continuous loop of a short clip.
