This Haus


Digital video, stereo sound, 4 minutes 57 seconds

This Haus was filmed inside an artist-built cardboard labyrinth with a lantern, a torch and a crew of two. It's an exploration of the presentiments of entanglement we sometimes feel when cohabiting a space, an idea, a shared psyche, or a stretch of lifetime. The score is provided by experimental electronic duo Actual Russian Brides, using synthesised sound, voices, crockery, wine glasses and knives.

as epic as Burial (Cortés), but more underground...
