 Elsewhere (Works)

colour, stereo, dimensions variable
loop duration: 16 min. 10 sec.

Elsewhere takes the form of a HD film installation made using footage shot directly from Tan’s former studio overlooking the city of Los Angeles. As only steadily is revealed, the voice-over provides a description of a utopia. Trying to imagine and formulate such a world brings its own challenges. The imagery of a decidedly imperfect urban environment with its pollution and endless streaming traffic combined with the report of a chillingly ideal world seem somehow at odds with each other, while at the same time entirely pertinent to our current situation.
