One guy shoots the other, for gold, but he forgets that their hands are tied together, and realizes as well that they are in the middle of nowhere, actually in a desert. Both of them end up with a mortal end and with far bigger consequences than in the Ultimatum game.
The motto of this film is taken from a poem by British humorist and poet Thomas Hood (23 May 1799 – 3 May 1845). The poem is about gold and how this material is a never-ending test of both greed and generosity.
Untitled (Gold) is made for ‘Generosity Is The New Political’ curated by Lotte Juul Petersen at Wysing Arts Centre (Cambridge). Untitled (Gold), reflecting on what generosity could mean, consists of part of this poem, in neon, glooming in the fields of Wysing.
