Continuous camera movement circling a table. Gloved hands add round marks on aerial photographs and drawings. Maybe they are preparing a terrorist attack. All objects seen are high-end designer objects.

Immigrant Song is a two-channel video installation. On the first screen a drummer unpacks a typical drummer’s stick bag, filled with firework rockets, and plays a variation of John Bonham’s drum groove from Led Zeppelin’s »Immigrant Song« using firework rockets as drumsticks. On the other screen fireworks over a night sky go off in synchronisation with the drumbeats from the first screen.

In the pilot, »Cross over«, television chefs Frans and Björn cook a three course dinner: shrimps, dill cooked in red wine and served with white beans in tomato sauce, Swedish Falukorv sausage baked with walnuts and eggs flambé in cognac served with whipped cream. The kitchen is very messy and unclean. All over the place you see cook books, tooth brushes, a human skull and artists material – adding character to the already fashionably grimy environment. As a viewer you see creative cooking in the act but can also recognise something of your own attempts at domestic gastronomy.
