Old, Temporary

2005, 8 min, color, sound

Old, Temporary applies an obscure, appropriated Yoko Ono monologue to a banal setting. Donegan shoots a young woman as she casually meanders through a shopping mall and tries on clothes. The audio reveals Ono reciting vague personal observations about relationships as The Beatles are heard recording The White Album in the background. Donegan's edits and transitions are disjointed and out of sync with the banal actions of the woman; through "cinematic" effects and the dense soundtrack, the mundane is transformed into a chaotic internal monologue.
