The video installation of Kateřina Baránková consists of a quietly ambient 3D simulation depicting the still-lives of ordinary subjects, and from an accompanying text which is a sort of instruction for a successful career in society. The stretchingly slow camera run emphasizes the absurdity of the views of the perfectly rendered objects and juxtaposes the parallel speech that parodies the popular motivational videos. The project is even extended into a separate website: www.preparationforafuturecareer.com. / pv
