So Long Babe /1997

Single screen video installation with wooden one-steater airplane.

After publishing the fantasy comic book Starvision, Starr began to develop the illustrations into three dimensional works. In Drivin' On (1996), So Long Babe (1997) and the epic Tuberama (1998) she transformed the comic stories into real-life events by building her own modes of transportation. For So Long Babe Starr flies across London in a red one seater airplane to the strains of the Nancy Sinatra song, 'So Long Babe'.
