*Cabin Fever* (Dir. de Sade, 2010)
This short film is a reenactment of the crowded cabin scene from the Marx Brothers’ *A Night at the Opera*. This scene can be seen as metonymic of the figure’s position as constructing the landscape, while being unsustainable within the landscape. A comedic conceit drives more and more figures into the space of the cabin, delineating it as a place with a function, while simultaneously making this place unusable for its purpose. The narrative conclusion is that these figures must then be expelled in order for the claimed place to exist as such. In this the function of the place is changed to that of a joke.
