Men in the Wall
“As each guy occupies his own space – now dancing, now playing the guitar while singing lieder – each acts as human semaphore, sending human-shaped signals. It's as tightly constructed as a classic American sitcom, and funnier” — Peter Goddard, Toronto Star
Men in the Wall is a four-screen 3D video installation where four men, life-size, chat across the boundaries of their own cramped frames, looping through a sequence of poetry, jokes, songs, quibbles, flamenco, and napping. To enter this quirky world, viewers don old school stereoscopic 3D glasses to watch these shared lives, revealing a public quartet of private differences.
