Varying durations

A series of twenty very short videos (all less than a minute) tells the tale of mundaneness and repetitiveness of existence through the juxtaposition of different occupations from surgeon to construction worker to butcher to having sex and eating food. Made monochrome by the use of the same color plasticine (called “flesh” by Caran d’Ache) throughout the vignettes undifferentiating the disparate activities, the videos, which are looped, emphasize the absurdity of these gestures and the lack of arc in daily life.
