Collective Rituals is an experimental video project that explores the relationships between the human body and public space. The artist Dier Zhang takes a closer look at the formation of public space and the constitution of spatial relations. Filmed in Los Angeles, CA, where cars are the primary means of transportation, clusters of
bodies and cars move and create new space while interacting with each other. The spatial relation between the bodies and the shared spaces changes constantly. It seems like this never-ending actions of moving through space seem almost ritualistic.
