In these four shorts, performers deliver surreal lines of text while enveloped by fantastical costumes or environments. Twin versions of a woman encased in glass speak of past lives; a man buried in rope complains of the rain; an austere woman spouts apocalyptic visions in a storm of red dust; and a man whose hands and feet are bound by shipping crates explains a lucid dream. These videos were created while Barber was an artist-in-residence at San Francisco’s recycling and waste facility. All of the costumes, sets, and camera equipment were found or constructed from trash. The scripts that the performers read were also found in the trash. Featuring in order of appearance Florentina Mocanu-Schendel, Dean Hernandez, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, and Jeremiah Barber.
