Golden Mile is an interactive digital work where the viewer can control the speed and direction and seemingly pan across an endless banquet table of diners. Photographs were joined together digitally to create the illusion of 34 diners sitting together at one meal when in fact these photographs were made at many meals over a period of more than a year. The viewers’ activity mirrors the activity of the diners as the food at these meals is shared and passed around the table. It was exhibited on a computer atop a table covered by a white plastic tablecloth like the ones that can be seen on the tables in the photographs on the screen. Chinese pop music playing at very low volume emanated from the computer’s speaker.
