Primarily Speaking, a multichannel video installation by Gary Hill, 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 functioned as “cutouts . . . ‘keyed’ into narrative schemes,” which became constitutive of the internal dialogue of a character. In the juxtaposition of the audio and video, the audio took precedence, constructing an interiority that provided the diegesis the images then circulated within.
