Dominik Lejman
The Running Track
Duration: video loop (40 min ), 2:09min. each segment
Production year: 2004
source: mini DV, media: DVD (repeat option included)

How much time is left to be recognized as a single individual involved in his/her own personal daily ritual before merging in to the statistical abstraction? Ment as a projection piece, my video uses a loop structure as a genre for the obsessivness of daily ritual performed on the running truck. Running backwards, a performer when struggling with his insufficiency of behaviour, dissapears into the void - environment attempting to adjust his daily scenario into the requirements of the running truck's pace.
