Heaven Video Series

In the best of these nine videos by Chicagoans, Todd Mattei's Total Running Time, tilted offhand shots of a house interior are accompanied on the sound track by high-pitched tones that shift with the imagery, the trancelike feel blurring the line between distraction and engagement. Doug Lussenhop's Fox Techno News in the Morning uses repetition to underline the grabbiness of his eponymous subject matter, and Kim Collmer's Mercury Moon exaggerates the mood created by low-budget SF, as a strange miniature vehicle emerges from a futuristic gate to cut grooves in the terrain. Wheels of Fury (1998), by Dan and Paul Dinello and Mitch Rouse, features a somewhat effeminate cowboy who cooks with fancy seasonings and a wheelchair-bound lady chasing a gunman; I couldn't figure out whether it was parodying classic TV westerns or Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man. On the same program, videos by Eric Fensler, Joe Fournier, Rusty Nails, Jon Lange, and Mike Finch. 81 min.
