Featured work: Casual Shopper – Judith Barry (USA, 1981, 28mins )

Casual Shopper presents a female protagonist wandering through a seemingly endless array of product displays. The woman both follows and is followed by a male figure, who appears to exist somewhere between reality and fantasy, within a carefully structured and intoxicating elevator-music-filled department store.  The piece conflates romantic desire with consumer desire, as both figures perpetually search.
