Hardcore, 2010

8:15 VIdeo Loop. Collaboration with Erin Frost.

One-take infinite make-out, created for the 2010 Seattle Erotic Art Festival.

Filmed through the viewfinder of Erin’s Hasselblad, we traded control of the shutter-release button. We loved how the released shutter masked the view, in direct opposition to the reveal it provides against film. While there were flaws in the first take–the camera shifts, the light changes drastically–we felt that the first take captured everything we’d hoped for, and more; these flaws were really just part of the whole and we welcomed them.

Displayed on a made-in-’85 motel TV, our video looped continuously throughout the festival.
