USA, 2017, S16 MM on DIGITAL VIDEO, 38 MIN
Exhausting the logic of the medium shot, Mediums depicts a series of subjects participating in the voir dire process as potential jurors in the American legal system. The dialogue is composited and culled from an array of found texts including technical literature from the internet, a jury selection pamphlet, an automotive manual, a union constitution, a fast food franchise contract, a health insurance FAQ, and blog posts. Channelling this content, the characters function as mediums themselves, sharing advice and a sense of civic duty with their fellow citizens.
Sex Without Glasses
CANADA, 1983, 16MM, 12 MIN
A playful examination of the artifice of cinematic space, Sex Without Glasses forefronts the background by centering the rear-projection process shot. Figures inhabit various scenes including a busy urban street, the beach, a rainy garden, and the classic driving shot in this intriguing formal experiment.
UK, 1977, 16MM, 17 MIN
A series of humorous incidents involving the use and misuse of public telephonesâ€”all featuring characters with the initials H.C.â€”is narrated over a montage of banal depictions of phone booths. Greenawayâ€™s classic performs a critique of the arbitrary relationship between text and image.
