Shot on video in Detroit Michigan, the characters walk through the desolate streets in real video sometimes in groups and sometimes alone. The image wobbles, flips and turns inside of the video frame. A commercial voice over actress speaks from texts Wolfson collected from the internet referencing identity, technology, memory and mortality most of which are personal accounts spoken in first person. Every few minutes Jordan Wolfson interrupts her giving basic formal instructions and adjustments distorting her tone, volume, and “sex”

Laurence Hamburger, ‘Frozen Chicken Train Wreck¬†(co-published by Chopped Liver Press and Ditto Press 2013)

“I began collecting South African tabloid posters in 2008 with no other purpose than to preserve them. I thought they were funny, clever¬†and true. Composed in a local vernacular of shebeen English, these statements are part of the texture of our urban fabric; so familiar as to almost disappear. The newspapers themselves were not keeping an archive, and however ephemeral they might seem I thought there was a relevance in them that was not being recognised; something uniquely South African.”

Electroboutique, ‘AirPort’ (2009)

AirPort is placed in a forest, between trees and bushes. The huge departures display shows flight numbers, departures times, gates, airlines and destinations. All information is displayed in real time. A female voice announces changes in the timetable, last calls and other information that is usually announced at airports.
