Talent is a recreation of the global phenomena of variety talent shows. I cast students from my graduate program as contestants. I believed that becoming an artist and becoming the winner of the contest is similar process that involves transition and competition. It is a reflection of a system that combines high/low culture (fine art/pop culture,) which  judges and rejects through a capitalistic value systems. It was produced with the green screen behind the performers, with constantly changing graphics that represent the distraction of contemporary media.
