Death by Chocolate: West Edmonton Shopping Mall (2005), 8min

We start the evening thinking about our friend Dan Graham whose sharp observations and disarming humour have enriched our lives.

Death by Chocolate: West Edmonton Mall is shot in the bizarre yet familiar arena of the shopping mall providing a coldly beautiful view of mall culture: its architecture, its consumer public and its unique aesthetic world. A sugary portrait of corporate capitalism.
