Two Surfaces and No Thickness

single-channel stereoscopic 3D video projection, with audio.TRT 18:29

Combines footage recorded on the East Pier at Dun Laoghaire, Dublin with sequences of objects that take their behavior from Samuel Beckett’s short play Act Without Words I (1956-7). Audio from a scripted job interview is paired with continuous, limping shots of an imposing granite wall, while original compositions for prepared piano and synthesizer punctuate the appearance of objects as they drop into frame.
