Objects of Desire

Video Artist: Anna Kolosova
Country: Year: Duration: 11 min 18 sec


Overloading with information and production has resulted in people’s incapacity to digest it all, as one just cannot keep pace with the “progress”. As a result, our brain is always busy processing new information and has no time left for anything else. This satisfaction results in different mystification; consumerist corruptness gives rise to new objects. They are objects of YOUR desire!

This video is a mixture of existing consumer objects (food, clothing etc.). In the process of the film, these pictures will merge and produce a new product. That’s a mechanic for new objects of a new consumerist era.
