CAKE AND STEAK
Suburban Trilogy - Part 1

by Abigail CHILD
2004 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 21' 00

CAKE AND STEAK excavates ‘girl training’ in the legacy of home movies and post-war American suburban culture. Constructed as a series of achronological ‘chapters’ in which Edenic images of adolescent twirlers, basement parties, and ‘dress-up’ are challenged by a sound montage composed of horror movie music, old TV shows, laugh tracks, and machine noise of our modern Arcadias, CAKE AND STEAK is conceived for single-screen and loop projection.
