Year: 2008

 

Medium: Four-channel video installation, stereo sound, 16meters x 2.8meters, 18mins

 

Action description

A choreographed action in which four riders participating in the fast-speed group riding sessions at MotoTT Taupo motorsport-park ride sequentially (locked in a line 1,2,3 & 4). The riders followed eachother in sequence nose-to-tail for the duration of the session. The 30 other riders  partcipating in the fast-group session move between the four riders (or are organically overtaken by their formation of four) whilst the group maintains its order. Each rider has a forward mounted on-board bullet camera used to record the ride for re-installation in a gallery context.
