1981, 50:00 minutes, colour, English
It’s a million years in the future and we’re all pretty well bombed out of our heads. We spend most of our time in the burn-out zone. Things pass through but nothing sticks for very long. Maybe something did happen, maybe something will happen but nothing ever is happening – is it? Wander from fantasy to fiction. Ignore where all that power we are generating goes. No one knows and no one wants to know. There is no Frankenstein. You don’t talk. You just watch. You don’t think. You just are. You don’t move. You just pose. Pose? Pose!
A tape about the abuses of technology and the ritualistic demands of power.
“Without being didactic, Videage makes you eerily aware of the electrical power, from radio waves to radioactive hums, that are circulating in the atmosphere beyond the threshold of our senses… Randy & Berenicci touch upon our object of worship - technology - and focus on the emptiness of those rituals.”
- Carol Corbeil, The Globe & Mail, March 21, 1981
