CIVIC ENDURANCE (2003)

CIVIC ENDURANCE (2003) arose from a 26-hour-long performance. On a randomly chosen day, 26 homeless young people on the street in Seattle were asked if they were willing to pose. First they were photographed, and after that they had to stand still in front of a hidden camera for an hour. The 26 films were assembled on one DVD, played at 12 times normal speed. The result symbolized how society races past the homeless young people. It was also a meaningful act for these young people, who often struggle with psychiatric problems, drug addiction or attention deficit, to stand still in front of a camera for an hour. The sound track for CIVIL ENDURANCE consists of street noises and of the young people's stories.
