The Cashier

9h-Video-Installation, Single Channel Video, Sound

Excerpt from a 24 hour video installation based on the analysis of an obsessive dream one of the authors had.

We see an endless line of the products on the checkout belt that do not belong to anyone and there are no customers in sight, yet the checkout clerk continues to do her job, scanning each individual item. The piece shows a regular working day in any given supermarket. The question the artists are asking in the piece is not: “What would I do if I was the checkout clerk?” but “How hard is it to do something no one is interested in?”
