Temporary Installation

On view at 55th Ann Arbor Film Festival 

Pitching a tent in a public campground is a performance of demarcating privacy in the hopes of engendering personal, family bonding away from the distractions of the virtual world. As such, a family camping trip in itself is a constructed intimacy which is paralleled by my design of an intimate audience experience within the video tent. However, intimacy and concentration are broken when the spectators enter, aligning artist and audience in our act of intrusion. The implications of my attempts to document families at public camping sites trespassed and interrupted the family’s bonding experience. By choosing to enter and engage in the act of being an audience or documentarian, we splinter images of the families’ collaborative efforts towards privacy
