Stupa (burial mound)

1991, 60 min, color, sound

Writes Kobland, "Commissioned by La Sept, Paris to create a one-hour continuous camera take, Stupa is a 'mourning' commute from suburban Long Island to the New York City landfill. The audio-mix is composed of radio talk shows, JFK speeches, the soundtrack from It's a Wonderful Life, a hodge-podge of music and TV soaps. In the end it's pretty much an elegy to JFK. Forgive me, but he just gets bigger and bigger as we go on."

Photography: Nancy Campbell. Audio Mix: Ken Kobland. Helicopter Pilot: Geir Stormen.
