Microwave Recipes for One, 2010, series of 3-minute-videos

Driver attempts to find the fun and extraordinary aspects in ordinary household objects. Her series of videos is based on a found book on microwave cooking from the 1980’s. Staged as an experiment, Driver is exploring the redundant 30 years old idea of a modern woman and sophistication and luxuriousness of microwave meals. She also blurs the boarders between art and entertainment by using humour as a significant feature of her work.

 

Apples and Pears, 2011, video

Documentation of the flashing light in a staircase depicts a random encounter that could be ignored by many. By choosing to capture the strange occurrence Driver has added weight to it and thus managed to bring something extraordinary and fascinating out of something mundane. The way the video is projected also creates a playful illusion of real stairs in a closet leading nowhere.
