Storyline

Produced for the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival, Auto-Olympic merges document and fantasy in a cautionary tale of American car culture in overdrive. A Greek torch runner, transported to the media landscape of Los Angeles during the '84 Olympics, is confronted by contemporary urban life. Juxtaposing dichotomies -- machine/body, technology/man, public/private -- Auto-Olympia redefines the Olympic motto "faster, higher, stronger" by constructing a metaphoric morality play that focuses on what surrounds the Olympic spectacle -- freeways, advertisements of corporate sponsors -- as a landscape of tourism and consumerism.
