The "Gray Area" Series: Program 2 - 60s Dress/Object

1993, 25:55 min, color, sound

Writes Baldino: "Initially inspired by the theories behind 'Fuzzy Logic,' this series reveals that opposites can be the same. Something is what it is and what it is not, simultaneously... All of the work is shot in the first take, without editing."

In these witty performance pieces, the objects constructed or reconstructed by Baldino can be named as objects with a use and yet are really incapable of fulfilling the function they are designed to perform. The objects simultaneously are and are not the objects indicated by their name.
