Ken Okiishi was born in 1978 in the US. The Deleted Scene was filmed at the project space APNews in Zurich in a now-defunct shopping mall.
APNews, which functions as an independent cinema and bookstore, acted as the producer for the film, creating a collaborative and open-ended process with constantly shifting roles. A TV set was constructed in the space, and two of the artists built a giant coin, which was rolled all over Zurich. The film is presented in the Foyer and two posters, printed on sheets of brass, announce the film presentation and serve as a material representation of the event in the exhibition space. The posters are co-produced with the graphic designer Mathis Altmann using simple layout templates which are freely available online.
