Drivin' On / 1996

While working on the fantasy comic-book Starvision, Georgina Starr began to bring her illustrations to life in various short video works which include So Long Babe and Inside Starrwood. For Drivin' On she constructs a life-size wooden car and takes a trip around the East End of London. The seemingly 'glamorous' tour in the shiny red sports car is soon revealed to be a physically challenging task as the car is made from heavy wood and powered only by the artist's body and feet.

 

Drivin' On is in the Ferens Museum Art Collection, UK
