From London’s street cleaning vans to Nanjing Pagoda; Speed Dated mercilessly compounds eight hours of video footage into a highly selective six minutes of life experience.
A cut n’ paste frenzy symptomatic of our media-overload culture confronts viewer as arcade language and everyday street signage become the syntax and structure for the narrative. Whilst the increasingly hysteric sonic and visual montage drives urgently towards an explosive conclusion, any affirmation of how to follow life’s path falls into chaos. Contrary to our need for a comprehensive spiritual A-Z, Speed Dated dismantles expected logic and falls short of any decisive truth.
