The frames of a 40 second video were exported and printed as individual images and assembled to form a “flipbook.” The content of the flipbook highlighted the distance between the video form and popular movies; the flipbook presented a fragment of a generic narrative harkening to a conventional Hollywood trope. The 350 pages made the book difficult to flip, thus reasserting its objectness, and rendering the object nigh useless.
