Listening by Yvonne Buchanan
A series of interior images compliment a distorted voice. The domestic sphere is photographed in specific detail, focusing primarily on the kitchen sink. A distorted voice attempts to make some contact. The solitude of this interior overpowers the faint signs of life that appear.
Contrasting the everydayness of an ordinary kitchen scene with subtle supernatural moments the piece is about absence, grief and longing. The video suggests a bridge across the rupture separating the living and the dead. An empty kitchen, signifying loss, reveals desires for an after-death existence and connection.
