MH Why did you decide to adopt such name knowing it immediately makes one think of the assassination of J.F.K.?
Z The passion for the literary work of J.G. Ballard led us to identify ourselves with the name of the author of the famous frames that portray the murder of J.F.K. In observing that dramatic sequence we can pass from spectator of a parade of cars, to sniper; we can identify ourselves with Jackie Kennedy or with the driver of the white Continental.
MH Is your work somehow influenced by that event?
Z More than the event, it is the nature of Mr. Zapruder’s film that has infested us and led us to think about our work starting from that excellent example of amateur film, documentary, fetish, a violation that passes through the private dimension and becomes a dream, an obsession, the human.
