Primarily Speaking

“Primarily Speaking,” a multichannel video installation, placed monitors within two walls that created a corridor. The videos consisted of flashing images, framed by spoken text. As Hill described it, the bits of everyday speech in the text function as “cutouts and are ‘keyed’ into narrative schemes,” which become constitutive of the internal dialogue of a character. In the juxtaposition of the audio and video, the audio takes precedence, constructing an interiority that provides the diegesis the images then circulate within.
