synopsis

Courier’s rig is one from a series of video works called Uncombative tools. Visually it follows the aesthetics of both popular science animations and product presentations, showing several tame tools, gadgets and instruments. These objects in various stages of their lifespan are in use by a fictional courier service for collecting, gathering, transport, sun-protect and orientation in an environment which is gradually re-wilding itself. It speculates or perhaps just fantasizes about the potentiality of reinventing the early transportation technologies to some extent, as part of thinking about possible changes in the use of technological means.
