Why are you wearing athletic gear if you’re not playing any sport today? is an auto-reflexive film documenting the theft of a camera. I entered a camera store, turned one of their Canon G12 camera's onto video function, and ran off with it, recording the episode.
In a single take, the footage escorts us past landmarks of Imperial Rome and sites rendered notorious in Italian cinema.
It conjures questions of an artist’s physical and fiscal endurance, and strips the film back to the acquisition of the camera used to shoot it. Perhaps it does little more than associate the production of experimental film with being an idiot. It provides a perambulating tour of Rome.
