The Conversation III

2014

There are three versions of The Conversation – all based around me talking to the camera in the studio – trying to get a conversation started and being met with short bright flashes or malfunction. The voiceover uses phrasing that you might use to a lover in a frustrated conversation or to shout to the camera as the automatic sensor misses a shot ‘Are you getting this?’. The repetitive phrases refer both to the technical failures of the camera – how often it misses capturing ‘the moment’ – and a lapse in human communication.
