animation from 2011

Strategies, 2010 a sequel to Showreel, documents the process of making collages. Screenshots, images and other found footage were collected over the course of two months and combined with rewritten phrases of advice given by business experts, martial arts gurus, software developers and Jacques Derrida. The background track was made by Van den Dorpel in 2002 and was never used before, for anything particular.

Created on the occasion of a group exhibition at the Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma, curated by Valentina Tanni.
