Transitional Soccer (2008)

Transitional Soccer (2008) / multichannel installation / programmed with Isadora

A four channel video and audio installation that uses soccer as a metaphor for exploring the emergences of relationality between individuals and societies within the context of nation-building.

Images were taken from a soccer match between Iraq and The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, two countries branded by George W. Bush as points on his so-called “Axis of Evil”.

I was particularly interested in exploring the complexities and possible relationships between the languages nations choose in the writing of their constitutions, nation-building, and the dynamics of geopolitical relationships.

Text was borrowed from Brian Massumi’s Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation (2002) to provide the conceptual framework.
