Always Crashing the Same Car Or:
The Postmodern Sisyphus
For ten years I have witnessed my brother’s fatal car crash on loop in my mind; repeatedly revisiting the day of the accident. Recognizing this as an inescapable thought, I sought a means to construct a physical manifestation of my mental state.
The result is Always Crashing the Same Car Or: The Postmodern Sisyphus, a performance in which I push a car in complete circle. This action is then played on a continuous video loop. By conducting this futile act, I am adapting a mental state into what is a physically exhausting task and one which yields no reward.
