The architecture of suburbia — shopping malls, freeways, showrooms — is juxtaposed with television sounds and visuals in this deconstruction of mass media manipulation and consumer culture. The disjunctive structure of Dayton MALLing juxtaposes recurring images of a pinball machine, a shopping mall and cars with the rapid patter of a game show and news reports. LA (Century City) presents two characters under surveillance in four related Los Angeles environments — freeway, beach, mall and media. Structured like a continuously changing TV dial, with interruptions and information fragments, this work presents television as a form of surveillance, where the act of watching and being watched is a pervasive experience of daily life.
