Teen Jail is an animated, surreal narrative that takes place over 40 minutes in one room. Through the open window, you can observe recurring characters fight, make out, dance, worship fire, read poems and drift in and out of reality. Rather than a linear viewing experience, the happenings in the room are made to be seen bit by bit, over time, as you live with the video print in your space.
This video print was curated byDaata Editions, a platform for artists and art collectors that work with moving image and sound.
