Re-cordings, 2008

Recreating a childhood game, in which siblings are invited into a darkened room and immersed in alien soundscapes whilst we peeped from behind the curtains, Re-cordings explores the unfolding reactions of participants as they listen to cassette tapes from my childhood observed only by the video camera.
