An insert square of a man running is superimposed over a magnified mouth that speaks to him—first in nurturing encouragement, then with a no-win Mommie Dearest kind of criticism. Originally presented as an installation on six monitors, Deadline focuses on “the stress man feels in the urban environment,” using a range of digital video effects to stretch, compress, flip and fracture the image. Whereas Almy's previous video projects focused on details of behavior within interpersonal relationships, this piece shifts to focus on man’s larger relationship to society.
