Cheese Puffs by Mary Magsamen & Hillerbrand, Stephan
Cheese Puff is an experimental video about our relationship with modern television culture using the context of the ultimate junk food, cheese puffs. We live in a middle class American town with Super Wall Mart, Targets and Costco. We eat at McDonalds, Taco Bell and TGI Fridays. We watch Fox News. We want to be heard. In this work we plunge through water and cheese puffs, while never touching. The cheese powder and oils eventually fall from the puffs making the water cloudy and thick. Through the use of irony we explore our relationship with each other and our culture. Additional footage includes images of our shoot in our garage referring to backyard sporting events such as backyard wrestling in Middle America.
