Cheryl Donegan b. 1962
(2003, 9:20 min, color, sound)
Donegan's vertiginous File looks to consumer detritus for inspiration, as well as Rem Koolhaas' notion of the "junkspace" of modern cities. Scraps of color and pattern slide across the screen in a stop and start progression that frustrates all sense of spatiality and depth. David Schafer's delirious soundtrack adds to the disorientation.
Sound: David Schafer "X10r.1", 2002 (excerpt).
