In featuring the towering images of a building, Rotation and Chrysler (2013) is reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s film Empire State Building (1964). Apart from its subject, an iconic building of New York, it holds a very similar sense of looming decadence in its evocation of obscure forces working behind the surface of things. As it rotates, the digital animation reproducing the Chrysler Building – an art deco skyscraper completed in 1930 – transforms itself into a wide variety of rotating cylindrical or elongated metallic objects such as a screw, a knife, and a spring. The degeneration implied here is that of an entire civilization and its symbols; the size of the projection is meant to match the implicit hyperbolic (masculine) power.
