Eileen Cowin | "Telephone", 2002

Media: 4 20" monitors. 4 DVD players, 4 stands
Dimensions: variable

In Telephone , four televisions are on stands in a semi circle. On each monitor a person is listening and responding to a situation on the telephone. The "script" is the same for all four people and the videos play simultaneously. The audio is very minimal, the story is told through the gestures, facial expressions and tone of voice. In a public setting the viewer is involved in a private moment.
