Adriana Lara, Solitaire, 2010

This video features a modified game of computer solitaire so that a joker, the card normally reserved to represent a variable, stands in for the entire deck. In so doing, the "wild" now becomes a kind of constant.  Presented above on a blue ground, this backdrop is substituted by various images to create further iterations.  The video itself is part of Lara's larger Scrxxns, a project consisting of a series of works that explore the qualities of different screens so as to find the potentiality of each.
