Terms and Conditions

Single channel video, 2004.
3 mins 25 secs, looped.

 

Terms and Conditions is a short video which features a besuited female presenter speaking to camera in a welcoming tone whilst standing in an idyllic agricultural landscape, replete with references to the painterly landscape tradition. Her speech appears to discuss the ‘site’ but the text is actually a composite of disclaimers from corporate websites. In the rural setting, the speech seems both absurd and curiously apt.
