Completely, Quickly
video installation
collaboration with Kevin Ramser
2014

Created in collaboration with Kevin Ramser. Additional reading by Marla Parker.

We were given the challenge to create an interactive video installation in reaction to three texts: The Malady of Death by Marguerite Duras, The Burrow by Franz Kafka, and the sucking-stones sequence from Molloy by Samuel Beckett. Reading these as three instances of characters working through their neuroses, we edited the texts together using our own arbitrary and overly-complicated method: by jumping between them mid-sentence in places where the same word exists in multiple texts.

Text is whispered through the television speakers when a visitor stands on the platform, indecipherable noise plays otherwise.
