Whether and ETA
single channel high definition video

Whether is an experimental video by the collaborative team of Hillerbrand + Magsamen. Whether is about the interaction between family members and how one persons emotions can effect the family dynamic as identities of parent, spouse and child, through the metaphor of fog, veil and reveal one another. What appears to be a typical family dinner becomes surreal as a cloud of fog engulfs and distorts the everyday event and fluctuates between memory, reality and dream worlds.

ETA is short for “estimated time of arrival.” In this video a couple’s tension is illustrated through the enclosed space of a car as rain and thunder dramatically pour down with an impending doom. The end reveals a constructed reality in a suburban environment that plays on ideas of film, theater and reality within a relationship.
