  Work Details  
  The action of passing your hands over the surface of an old carpenter’s table elicits an aural response from audio speakers around the small room. A couple impart their bodily passions while other voices disclose mysterious dream-like events reminiscent of a cinematic suspense thriller. These voices mingle among the familiar sounds of a car screeching, a telephone ringing, a knife being sharpened, a gun shot, movie music, a woman softly reciting the alphabet. The viewers’ hands orchestrate this collage, composing layered and provisional tales. Accessed 27.07.2009 from http://www.tba21.org/program/exhibitions/8/artwork/56?category=exhibitions
