The Little Neck Factory

2008 | Barbara Bloom

Half Full Half Empty

Barbara Bloom presents a video still life that does not remain still. On a table are a gift, book, keys, paper, grapes, candle, wine glasses. These objects have movement without any visible agent. One can switch between three parallel running versions of a conversation between a male and female voice in the present, future, or past. The project called for us to create a class that kept track of the movie's playhead location and pass that to the chosen audio track so the two would always remain in sync no matter when and which audio track was clicked.
