Motoboy / Cacau The Mad Dog
3 screen installation by Caecilia Tripp 2008
"Motoboy /CACAU the Mad Dog" is a filmic art project which follows the daily deliveries of the Motoboy Cacau through the megalopolis of São Paulo in an open scenario inbetween (non)fiction and the unpredictable moments of life.
Equipped with a small camera the motoboy & pixografia artist Cacau has filmed himself, his trajectories through the city, his encounters or gatherings with friends and family.
Friends and unknown persons from different backgrounds have invented some scenario for him, send him somewhere or meet someone, or invent some sort of situation.
Living in the periphery and doing his deliveries in the centre, Cacau, Motoboy, becomes the endless passenger and messenger in this chaos-world, constantly crossing the border between center and periphery, as the go-between of all different worlds as one.
The soundtrack of the film by DJ CIA brings different music references from urban underground hip hop in which he is very well known as well as playing with music references of different filmic genres.
The display of 3 screens dwells the time-space lapses inbetween repetition, ellipses, delay and change of being "A life" in echo to oneself in a world you cannot grasp.
