TAPECODE 2003.00

The film features Chihota Rahel reading the lyrics to ‘Reading Minds’ with the backdrop of a busy city street, interspersed by the artist making four gestures. These gestures illustrate the way in which people’s senses, and abilities to be social, can be taken away by trauma. These effects of trauma are exacerbated by the hectic nature of city life, and the general lack of awareness concerning these effects.
