Single channel video, stereo audio

Size variable

February 9, 2008

Q&A is a single chanel video with stereo audio which performs a dialectic oscillation between question and answer in an attempt to locate a site of metaphoric thought. The sentences shift at the rate of a blinking cursor and propel the audience in one of two directions: the "bottomless" question or the "topped" out answer. Two stereo speakers play opposing ascending and descending Shepard-Risset glissandos. These glissandos are the auditory equivalent of the visual barber pole in that they appear to continually move yet remain in stasis, never changing.
