“Ghost Riding involves walking or dancing alongside a car while a vehicle is still moving.”

-Wikipedia

In Ghost Ride I examine how people represent themselves in the ghost riding community and how these representations have spread from subcultural to global level in the Internet. Young U.S. soldiers have taken ghost riding to Iraq. Mobile phone camera footage of ghost riding soldiers gives a new perspective to our way of seeing the connection between war and our everyday life.

Ghost Ride is a two channel installation. Second channel consists of text comments foundĀ from video sharing communities. Screening version (seen above) also available.
