Speed Up

Video

Speed Up begins with a voice that says ”slow down the aging process” and then several voices just keep on going. A pair of eyes try to find meaning in the chaos. The jelly-like skin that surrounds the face can be a method of protecting oneself or preserving oneself, as if it were the dish aspic. By cutting out demands from beauty commercials and putting them into new sentences and context, an absurdity is created. The video work is based on how advertising and the mass media communicate through image and text. Their language is driven by hitting right, straight into the human’s doubts about being good enough. We have to slow down, breathe, drink eight glasses of water, sleep, believe in ourselves, and be happy about ourselves. At the same time, people are urged to constantly improve, change, look and behave like someone else, something better.
