For the monumental installation Play Dead: Real Time, artist Douglas Gordon filmed a circus elephant obeying a series of commands.

Like many of Gordon's protagonists, the elephant is subject to forces beyond its control. Simultaneously presenting several different versions of the scene, in front and rear projections and on a monitor, the work depicts the event from a range of perspectives rather than from a single static viewpoint.
