Collaboration with Donna Conlon
In Capapults we comment on mass consumerism and pollution by way of a game we invented. Using disposable spoons as catapults, we shoot thousands of plastic bottle caps at a hole in a concrete platform. The platform was once part of a U.S. military installation during its occupation of the Panama Canal Zone, and is now an observation deck in a natural park. As the video comes to an end, the viewer discovers that the bottle caps which fall through the hole accumulate on the forest floor, forming a giant mountain.
