Lana* (video 3:00)

Lana, 2014, 3 minutes
Dave Simonds – filmmaker
Music by Zammuto, Code Breaker
This piece continues my ongoing interest in animating sculpture. It features people wearing a sculptural costume and moving in ways that are suggestive of both states of anxiety and humor. By broadening the universal sign of inverted pockets into a suggestive space, I hope to raise questions about “having” and “not having”, and comment on contemporary obsession with wealth as a means to joy.
Special thanks to those who wore the pants: Trent Tabor, Alejandro Salas, Olivia Simonds, Ruth Bruno, Susan Quinn, Charlie Reetz, Ruby, Cole and Frank Jackson, and Karin Podmore
