Interrupted Attempt

1986, 04:00 minutes, B&W


The visual jump cuts make visual the manipulation of both the subject and the substance of the interview. The tape, like television, is opaque. Its overpowering structure displaces the voice of the artist.
"These interrupted and somewhat cliched attempts at expression call into question the act of communicating - the order and content, the meaning, and the effectiveness of words, of language." -G.P.
