A park like no other
Ulu Braun's panoramic film The Park takes up one long wall of Young Projects' cavernous Pacific Design Center space. In it, you see a bright red, Olympic-size track with a fictional cityscape in the background. A gang of bikers lights a bonfire beside the track, while a runner reclines in the middle of a lane, two naked women in a nearby sandpit look like they're in the midst of a porn shoot, and more, as the camera slowly gives a 360-degree view of the scene. Berlin-based Braun lifts most of his images from German TV, so the figures all move back and forth, like animated gifs, only somehow more natural. The Park is just one of 15 virtuosic films included in the Young Projects show. Pacific Design Center, Space B210, 8687 Melrose Ave., W. Hlywd.; through March 1. (323) 377-1102; youngprojectsgallery.com.
Tuesdays-Fridays. Starts: Feb. 5. Continues through March 1, 2013
