Landmarks Video presents "Mr. Pick Up" (2001) by John Pilson. The film is at once a comedic farce and a humanistic tragedy, visualizing human moments within the walls of corporate spaces. On view throughout May.
Pilson garnered attention in the late 1990s and early 2000s for works that featured individuals - often his friends and family members as actors - engaged in absurd and amusing behavior within office buildings. He examined how people define themselves through architectural spaces and how their characters emerge as a reaction to their environments.
