I Decided To Fight With My Wife Over Salmon
Directed by Luke Strickler • Animation, Short Films, 20-Mar-2023
A frustrated husband spirals during his pre-planned fight with his wife at Ruby Tuesdays. Luke Strickler directs “I Decided To Fight With My Wife Over Salmon,” a constantly morphing digital art collage about love, hate, and death. The misogynistic man sees fine dining as the perfect opportunity to argue with his wife — this way, the fight takes place in a public forum, encourages showmanship, and promotes spillover involvement from restaurant staff to maximize drama. A scattershot stream of visuals — Joe Biden kissing a goat, a used Super Bowl ring, a neck tie with tiny dogs — are all created in Dalle-2 and accompanied by a medley of inflammatory thoughts. Strickler stays on the front lines of new art technologies, finding ways to subvert the common uses of digital tools with satirical and extreme points-of-view. We’ve featured four of his previous films (click below to watch them all), among them, the two-part series, “2064” about an absurdist future. -KA. Directed, Written, Animated, and Voiced by Luke Strickler.
