M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I (for New Orleans)
This 3 channel video documents and attempts to recreate the experience of walking along the Mississippi river in New Orleans, December 2017. Each monitor is placed according to the viewers’ position in the space. The top monitor, placed above the viewer’s head, frames video footage of a mysteriously ubiquitous airplane advertising insurance along the river’s path. The monitor in the middle is placed at eye-level and shows footage taken along the horizon line seen from the river. The monitor below captures the ground and the water below, which is where remnants of the damage done by flooding are most visible.
