Crosstalk  2004
35mm transferred to DVD, projection with sound, 7min loop

Crosstalk is a term applied to the communication that organisms engage in when they are in distress. This film-projection loop is an extracted element from a film I made in which a woman causes a disturbance and stops a streetcar. We don’t see the disturbance, what we are left with in this installation is the space between - as we join in a circle and watch the invisible event we are caught staring at our voyeurism, ours and the people staring at the trauma, or disturbance.
