One Thousand, Nine Hundred and Ninety Six.
One Thousand, Nine Hundred and Ninety Six, is a 16mm film loop consisting of that many frames, each frame containing a different car, filmed over looking a motorway. A distinctive tension is set up between the projected image and the transparent image of the visible film material itself, giving the viewer two opportunities to view the separate frames. The projected image shines directly onto a wall, it is small bright and intense in colour. There is an agitation within the projected moving amalgam of cars, as certain colours and brands are momentarily recognised but continually renewed. Although it is possible to try and view a particular car again the film keeps moving as it makes its way through hooks suspended over 40 feet around the room.
