The Year After: Season 2
Adjunct Positions
March 25th - April 29th

The exhibition consists of an installation of photographs as well as short films, each under five minutes in length. The films focus on working in customer service, more specifically an ice cream/pretzel stand in a Southern California Westfield mall and the daily interactions, conflicts, and drama that come from a job. Each episode portrays a series of characters made from cardboard boxes and everyday materials. In each scene these idiosyncratic characters encounter minor occurrences that are exasperated by the banality of the everyday activity that surrounds them. Pescador performs as well as animates each of the puppets, shifting back and forth between voices and characters. The Year After: Season 2 is presented in chronological order, mimicking the repetitive structure of sitcom television. Within this format, conflicts occur and are resolved by the end of each episode, providing a sense of humor and comfort in their familiarity.
