Lovely Academic Slaughter Houses (2005) DVD NTSC, color, 27 min

Genre: Animation

Keywords: Philosophical

Inside the card catalogue of the University library, Greek boys and pin-up girls gamble on the Acropolis. Meanwhile, out in the real world, parfait desserts and unruly children are floating by in uncontrollable clouds of bubbles. Based on a fully improvised text, this video meditates on how the boxlike conceptual thinking of academia attempts to grapple with sexuality, gender, culture, and the unclassifiably bubblelike flow of reality. Multiple layers of meticulously crafted imagery help the viewer to make sense of the complex text and music.
