These video portraits are explorations of erasure. Two people have agreed to speak about whatever they would like alone in a room with a camera under the assumption that no one will ever hear what they say. All of the speech in the video is erased through a process that permanently deletes the content without a person needing to see or hear the footage. What remains are the spaces in between and the beginnings and ends of words. A real connection to these subjects is denied by these videos. We can only relate through the information that is left behind. The videos are displayed vertically on monitors.
