The Montreal-based artist and filmmaker, David Latreille, created a video inspired by Phoebe Tsang’s poem, “Recurring Highway Incident,” from her collection of poetry, Contents of a Mermaid’s Purse.  The video features Latreille re-inventing an Absolut Vodka bottle into a work of art by following the poem’s theme of repetition and inscribing it in and around the object.
