Digital video
10 minutes

As an annual tradition, the artist visits the Wayne County State Fair in Honesdale, Pennsylvania every August and documents random events with his video camera. This specific video piece is based on footage that was shot in August of 2001. One month later the artist used same tape to document the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center. The video will be on view on the Socrates Sculpture Park website, and the artist has created posters announcing the video in a style that echoes traditional state fair posters.
