’Stupa’ was an unrestricted assignment from the French broadcasting station ’La Sept’. It invited film and video artists to make a remarkable, one hour, uninterrupted tape. An aerial shot filmed from a low-flying aircraft provides one continuous view of an urban/suburban landscape. The soundtrack carries soundbites fading in and out, seemingly picked up from the houses and businesses over which the shadow of the camera passes. With recurring excerpts of JFK’s legendary speeches, the camera plays voyeuristic ghost, a stealth-bomber spirit of the past hovering over the landscape as a reminder of ideals never realised.
