Art Institutionalized (Sfai 1980) (1980) 16mm, black and white, 3.75 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists, Comedy, Films about Film, Media

A humorous parody about the condition of creative film studies in Art Schools and Colleges in general. The soundtrack is a composition combining the musical score from the film Ballet Mecanique and the voices of the film students testing various pieces of film recording equipment and complaining about grades and procedures. The visuals reveal a modern day mechanical ballet performed by the instructor (myself) on the dada chessboard of absolute reality to the automatic beat of an intervolometer clicking time away one frame per second, as he attempts to relay technical data to his students.
