Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations

2014


Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations is an experimental documentary series of screen captures of gas station surveillance videos found on YouTube. The images work together to form an account of scenes depicting violence, crime, and distress that have been uploaded to the web for purposes of entertainment and commoditized by subscribe buttons and algorithm-based pop-up advertisements.

The project is situated as a contemporary update on Ed Ruscha’s iconic photobook, Twentysix Gasoline Stations (1963). By utilizing the inherent cultural documentary roles played by Ruscha’s photographs as a point of departure, Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations “clicks the refresh button” to reflect American cultural values of commercialism, new media consumption, and the fetishism of violence in the 21st century.
