Out of Sync
Videos (by GeneFree)
This video is more complex than it may seem at first glance. It was constructed in the following way. I sat in front of a camera, and I pretended that there was someone at my side. I displayed a wide range of facial expressions, as I reacted to the changing behaviors of my imaginary companion. Then, Gene Panczenko took a seat in front of the camera and repeated this process. In the final video, these two independent videos are juxtaposed. Since they are of unequal length, they are out of sync. Thus, the relationship of the two characters changes constantly — and for no valid reason! They are not really reacting to each other at all.
