Disco Beast

2016. video (color, sound), media player, screen or projector, 18 min loop. Music by Furniteur.
Disco Beast follows a psychedelic unicorn as it wanders through a series of empty commercial spaces, including an abandoned mall and a luxury hotel lobby. The unicorn as a symbol of the otherworldly and unobtainable creates a discordance with the banality of the corporate spaces and seems to elicit subconscious anxieties surrounding globalization and consumerism.
