Either Side of an Empty Room

From Rhizome Artbase

"Either Side of an Empty Room" is a net-based, non-interactive video work engaging us in the possibility of technological intimacy. It is multilayered and created with a logic and aesthetic endemic of the web, while referencing surrealist and collage explorations of film. This work employs the lyrical language of the cinema to compose an autobiographical portrait; the viewer hovers over a series of multi-layered videos. Finally, they exist as a composition of emerging frames which overlap, collapse and fill the computer's own bordered space.
