Our mission is to distribute and archive works of time-based art. Each issue highlights artists working in new or experimental media, whose works are best documented in video or sound.

What I Hear You Saying
with commentary by Matt Freedman

For this single work comprised of two videos, each 7:29, we held three phone conversations over a month, each recording his or her end of the conversation in sound and image. We then shared footage, employing the whole set to each create one video that maintained its own internal logic, yet was best viewed alongside the other's.

Having been friends for a decade, the project reflects our experience of persistent aspects of communication that precede all media forms, impeding, facilitating, and even defining connection. Mediation is not first a condition of living in networks, but rather a condition of living with others.
