Samuel Chow's installation I'm Feeling Lucky presents an interconnected web of moving-image narrative paths in a constant flow of internet-derived imagery. Alluding to Google's pervasive search button, Chow's "random path network" mirrors our daily surfing experiences. Multi-layered moving-images interweave and collide into a seamless vibrant visual mash-up as Chow remixes and constructs a network of possibilities composed of found online videos, images and sounds from his own surfing expeditions. Our experience as voyeurs leads us into a random environment where anything can happen. Chow's project highlights the nature of contemporary cinematic experience as heterogeneous, subjective and individually determined.
