  • SLANG references the director s fascination with lists and the construction of language; with ordering systems and fundamental ways of classifying or connecting meaning. The impetus was Random House s List for Òwoman in their Slang Dictionary. ÒPackaged in the form of big-budget, corporate advertisements selling lifestyle, SLANG employs split-screen, scrolling text and rapid edits to reveal alternative avenues of meaning and provides a sophisticated critique of popular culture and the medium of television.
