"A hilarious montage of movies, both classic and obscure, creates a rapid-fire countdown."
(William Sloan, "Outstanding Short Films from International Festivals", Department of Film and Media, Museum of Modern Art New York)
"Exciting found footage filmed made up of 266 (classic) film fragments. Counting down from 266. Schreiner sought and found fragments from film classics and obscure reels of film to complete his task. With a great feeling for building up tension and tight editing, he holds on to the viewer's gaze."
(catalogue IFFR Rotterdam, 2006)
"The numbers from 266 to 1, all glimpsed in brief shots from hundreds of films, are counted down in a hypnotically progressive edit, the ultimate in brutally linear narrative structures."
(Paul Rooney, "Out of Darkness", Screenings of artists’ video in cinemas throughout the Midlands, Great Britain)
"Flag as inapproriate". This unconspicuous button with a flag icon appears underneath every single YouTube video we watch marking the limits of our freedom in the Internet. Once flagged by anonymous users, after being checked by the also anonymous YouTube team, a video quickly disappears forever. In exactly this process, Dominic Gagnon intervenes. He 'saves' the flagged videos before they are deleted and adds them to a dark and mythological collage of American survivalism. People have their say, who deeply mistrust the government, who warn their fellow citizens, and who arm themselves visibly. An unclear image emerges. While the protagonists are scared of the almighty American government, the viewer is irritated what to find the most threatening in this "hell": the United States of America, the critics armed to the teeth with conspiracy theories, or the anonymous censorship power of the companies which control the web. The protagonists of Pieces and Love All to Hell are mostly female, whereas in Gagnon's earlier work RIP in Pieces America (transmediale.10, see the video below on this page) they were mainly male.

Each square represents an album, with sampled artists on the lower half and sampling artists on the upper half. Albums are placed horizontally according to release date, while vertical placement reflects the number of samples on that album. The middle resprents the area of most sampling, so commonly sampled albums are closer to the side with the sampling albums, and vice versa.
The rectangles that appear to the right of a selected album represent the individual songs. Songs with taller rectangles have a higher sample count.
The sampling data is from the-breaks.com, although album information for the sampling songs was collected through other means.
