The End — Film Trailer GIF, 2018
While making The Evening Pink, it was noted that the photographs appeared reminiscent of the closing scene in a classic Western. To verify this, 100 films were deconstructed. The last scenes were re-configured, revealing patterns. After violence, destruction, the possibility for transformation is suggested, if only beyond the edge of the frontier. The End situates the conclusion of the classic Western in a contemporary context, where climate change looms and beckons as an imperceptible — yet constant — force on the horizon.
The End is situated within a television sculpture. The television has been chosen as it was manufactured in the year coinciding with the most recent film depicted (~1979). A modulator is installed within the television, converting the original CRT frequency.
