I Wanna Be A Ship Captain
2010, 6:14, SD video

I Wanna Be A Ship Captain appropriates a found VHS tape with the same name from the mid 1990s.  In the tape, the career of the ship captain is glamorized and pitched to kids by an ambiguous entity; the military is never mentioned.  This reimagination of the tape employs the supercut editing technique to critique the desire for the American dream.
