Read Through
Single Channel Video
2019
Read Through was filmed from a fixed position, although this time with two cameras The scenes were selected from the returns of online Google searches with the keywords learning, education, sport, swimming, baseball and training – but this time with the term ‘famous scene’. The four selected scenes were taken from the following Motion Picture Films: 9 to 5 (1980), Karate Kid (1984), Working Girl (1988) and Field of Dreams (1989). The tension arose from the originating film scenes haunting my simplified, sincerely performed versions. The work was repetitive and earnest, with the video tracks slightly out of sync.
