Upward Mobility

Installation at UKS, Oslo, 2005, 8 min, video, silent, color, 2002

In contrast to the invisible horizontal line drawn by everyday movements in the city, this video shows a person in search of vertical deviations from this norm. Several situations depict attempts to move up in spaces like a bus stop, a telephone booth, a building marquee, cracks on a wall that lead to a window, among others. The character of the actions varies from that of a playful childish game to a teenage prank to a burglar break-in to a protester stunt; that is, activities that have in common the pursuit of unusual routes of action.

Projection at Video Guerrilha, São Paulo, 2011
