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.
