A remake of a scene from the lost Futurist omnibus film "Vita Futurista" (1916).
Created for "Futurist Life Redux" (2009), a Performa Commission with SFMOMA and Portland Green Cultural Projects http://performa-arts.org/blog/futurist-life-redux/ -- Original Synopsis (1916): Death (Chiti) comes for Cecco Beppe wearing black clothing with a white skeleton painted on top of it, so that, against the black background, he appears to be a floating mass of bones. But Beppe has a very bad odor--Death cannot stand it and collapses, allowing his victim to live on. This section was never actually shown with the rest of "Vita Futurista," because it was censored by the Italian Ministry of the Interior.
