1 Bed/Room

A video camera stands in the corner of a bleak, stripped down bedroom, filming everything going on in front of it. The camera doesn’t move but the various people using the bed do.

Using stills from a Hi8 locked off camera, the questions and discomfort created by the images force the viewer’s fantasy to fill in the gaps. It is an exploration of each viewer’s voyeuristic sense. Do they know they are being filmed? Are they getting paid? Is this consensual? Why am I looking at it?
