DISED 2604: PROF. CATHERINE POPLAR, 2004
Single-Channel, Video, Color, Sound
From the start, Catherine Poplar’s lecture entitled “Existentialism and Stephen King: The Artist’s Role in Society According to the ‘Shawshank Redemption’” is plagued with technical disaster. Repeatedly interrupted by a faulty microphone, the professor distressingly and humorously stumbles through the recording.
