MARK AERIAL WALLER, INTERVIEW WITH A NUCLEAR CONTRACT WORKER (1999),
Hi-8 to DigiBeta 9min, to accompany Glow Boys (1998)
Interview With a Nuclear Contract Worker
Hi-8 to DigiBeta, 9min
Interview with a Nuclear Contract Worker acts as a host and paratext to Glow Boys.
This work derives from a year-long conversation between artist Douglas Park and Mark Aerial Waller. It is an interview with an extra from the set of Glow Boys. He weaves a darkly humourus narration between his experience on the film set, shifting between his work in the reactor and his analysis of what he terms "the nuclear racket". Constantly in a state of flux, his conversation shifts from the film time, to the moment of being filmed, to his personal time away from the set. He is a temporal nomad, unconstrained by the controls of temporal designation.
