DAN SHIPSIDES - Högalidsgatan
DVD made as part of the Under plattan, ängen! (under the square, fields!) project at Konsthall C and Lava in Stockholm. Curated by Finbar Rosato Krook.
A video work which documents a climb made on a granite wall along Högalidsgatan a street, Södermalm, Stockholm.
The sound of passing cars, bikes and pedestrians give an ambient soundtrack to the video.
The work was produced by attaching two video cameras to a special bracket fitted to a backpack and so filming left and right along the wall as the person climbs along the urban walls. Its sister piece also made for this project is Skogskyrkogården.
Both works are made as single screen (split) DVD (projection or monitor)
Twin screen DVDs (projectors or monitors)
