“A landscape of incomplete signs,” is how Gretchen Skogerson describes DRIVE THRU, her high-definition video filmed in Miami in the wake of Hurricane Ivan.
The video focuses on the florescent bulbs in commercial signage, now exposed by the hurricane’s destruction, as they continue to try to illuminate or communicate. DRIVE THRU was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and premiered at the New York Film Festival. (20 mins., high-definition video)
