In the aptly titled “Launch”, LaBrooy once again weaves together the past and the near-present in the form of two intimately conjoined Ford pickup trucks. Note how the pair seem to share their rear wheels, making this composition truly a joint collaboration.
By digitally manipulating the composition’s visual parameters, LaBrooy can change the scene’s perceived time signature from noon to twilight. Adjusting virtual time of day to the Dark Side also affects the atmosphere surrounding the intertwined trucks in Launch, embodying them with a subtle malevolence not previously noticeable. A single bolt of heat lightning would be all that’s needed to send these flexible Fords into Maximum Overdrive!
