John Smith

John Smith took a video of an everyday street, with unsuspected people, in 1976. Smith then did a voice over, directing each person, each vehicle and each camera shot within the video piece. This, all layered together, creates an effective and comedic art piece. Every detail has been covered, which makes you laugh, when someone has been told to walk on shot while picking their nose.

The comedic aspect of this piece was highly unexpected, but also very welcome. At some points, I found that this did get somewhat repetitive, however it was still a welcome aspect.
