Tim Geers: USA, looped video. “Eleanor”, 2007, (3:11 min) gorgeously shot with reminiscences of Planet Earth and other wildlife documentaries, yet subtly critiquing the US involvement in the Middle East. The piece is shot tightly capturing crickets caught in a liquid substance, presumably oil. The close-up shots depict the bugs devouring and succumbing to the liquid. The piece is open enough to engage a dialogue on excess as well as war.
