The Art Of Receiving Data

Geoffrey Shea

1984, 12:00 minutes, colour, English


Media, viewing and other modern social pressures come to bear on three individuals: One gives his life story in a nutshell, we see another fade from a fantasy into the mundane and back into another fantasy, we view the third from a great distance and struggle to feel empathy. We are made aware of our own act of viewing and must doubt the validity of the sometimes contradictory images we see.
