Freed overlays the signal from two cameras pointed toward one another. Each camera is panned around to reveal a domestic environment. In a monosyllabic call and response Freed, along with her fellow operator, describe the content of the frame as the cameras move. During the piece, Freed and her collaborator present a contemplative series of observations into what is clearly an ongoing experiment. In discussion, Freed notes that the two cameras are not alike and create different imagery - they joke about both being transfixed to the monitor and suggest the cameras see more than they do. This sketchbook-esque work reveals an artist interrogating video’s representation of spatiality and objects while exploring the aesthetic of combining multiple signals.
