"Motorin' " highlights the power and ubiquity of our cultural fantasy with motorcycles by recording the momentary posturings of those who mount them at car shows. Regardless of age or background, a fleeting performance occurs when people “try on” this iconic object -- even when it is turned off, inside, and on a carpeted floor. The fantasy is perpetuated by additional props such as flashing lights and background sets, which, together with each individual’s pose, create a humorous and human stage.
