Flight Video, Chris Pearce, 2001, 5 mins., digital audio/video collage
FlightVideo was animated using exactly 3 found and appropriated source materials:
- A Flight Safety Card
- A Beginner’s Hypnosis Manual (read aloud by an old macintosh computer)
- An old video game called “MTV Music Generator”
FlightVideo combines elements that elicit, and emerge from, the same psychological space: A virtual space of media hypnosis derived from the combination of terror and apathy.
CAVEAT: FlightVideo is a densely subliminal text. You may leave the experience under mild hypnosis. Do not operate heavy machinery after watching.
