GAS HOOD DOES BUSBY BERKELEY – A CAPITAL EXTRAVAGANZA

The Adventures of Gas Hood

(Film still) Prototype: The Adventures of Gas Hood does Busby Berkeley, 2021. Hand-drawn animation and moving image performance 06:56.

Socialised as consumers, always producing, deeply entangled in how and what we produce, I perform myself and my character hidden in a mask, itself a character, a reconstruction of a WWI gas hood made to protect against early chemical warfare. Lost in a mass of technology, a material force. Where is our agency?
