Casting

Single-channel video
7:28, 2007

'Casting' (2007) is a single channel video, shot in a television studio in Chicago Illinois against a green screen. Televised news transcripts pulled from U.S news agencies were given to two actors, to each performing a cold reading. The two continuously struggle with the prenunciation and articulation of the information. As their reading progresses the extremely disjointed relationship they have with the content they're delivering becomes increasingly clear.
