NMWA presents a video installation by Soda_Jerk, a two-person art collective from Australia, in collaboration with the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), as part of 5x5, a citywide public art project.

Developed through sampling, a technique of appropriating segments from music, videos and film, After the Rainbow (2009) combines film clips from The Wizard of Oz (1939) and a 1960s television special starring Judy Garland. The work interweaves the fantasy world of cinema with the complex reality of Garland’s life. After the Rainbow is the second work in Soda_Jerk’s Dark Matter series, an ongoing cycle of video installations featuring deceased movie stars. The series explores the relationship between screen technologies and the personal and communal experiences of time and death.
