CLOUD CUCKOO LAND (2008)

Cloud Cuckoo Land is a video installation. Its single-channel component is jettisoned for screenings and is just under 17 minutes long. Cloud Cuckoo Land tells the story of a family's move to a contemporary commune. The central character, after years of fantasizing about the ideal way to raise her child, is confronted by her own intolerance and inability to integrate into the community. The artists play key parts in the video, along with Joan Jonas and other friends.
