Roger Welch, Drive-In: Second Feature

Drive-In: Second Feature, 1982

Drive-In: Second Feature appears like a totemic sign of the industrial, mechanical age of the motion picture and the automobile, which is passing as new electronic technologies emerge, altering our way of life and our forms of entertainment and art-making. The future of film and television, as we know them, is open. Roger Welch’s elegant work contemplates film from a double perspective, seeing it as both a theatrical and an installation medium.
John G. Hanhardt on 'Drive-In: Second Feature', September 1982
