Sodastream —

1999


A series of cheap sodapop bottles are first presented full and intact, held in the hand, and then seen dropping from above, smashing loudly onto a hard concrete floor. The result is shattering, fizzy, violent. The artificially coloured froth in some instances pink (cherry flavoured), at times orangey (peach), and so forth- recedes as the liquid curls briefly around the shards of glass and then, almost instantly, another bottle is held, then deliberately dropped to the floor, and so on and on.
