Photo stills of a James
W Johnson video installation, "CASUAL/TIES",
done for the Dia de Los Muertos
at the Underwood Arts Center in Lubbock, TX 2004
The installation consisted
of an acrylic painting on a 110" canvas of a US flag with the color fading
and leaking out
and a coffin-shaped pedestal made from found plywood for a 19" television.
"Dangerous" was shown on the set and "Casualties", with the soundtrack, was projected over all.
The videos loop indefinitely.
