An exploration of the decay of a house from the inside-out. Basements in particular are where we allow houses to truly show their age, and it's also where their biology is most evident--the pipes and wiring crawl up walls and weave through rafters, hanging like tired nerves and varicose veins. What I discovered as I made the piece, however, is that the act of editing the video and applying the audio produced a sort of heartbeat in the house, giving it a sense of life that a still photograph wouldn't capture.
This was a 12-frame obstruction, built for S300 Video Art class. I shot the video with a VHS camcorder (itself a nearly-dead piece of technology) over the summer. Audio is my own, created in Audacity.
