Pale Patrol suggests an ambiguous scene: a frozen stage with no conflict and no resolution, only symbolic events. Is this public display a lack of will, an ambivalence on both sides, political enactment, or détente? Pale Patrol is part of The Humors, a four-part video collage series exploring urban dispositions.
Note on The Humors:
Ancient Greek philosophers wrote of four temperaments (or ‘humors’) that color all of creation: sanguine, choleric, melancholic and phlegmatic. Urbanity is part of this creation, and also embodies versions of these dispositions. The Humors suggests urban behaviors and relationships, those of people and of the built environment itself.
