The Space Between The Teeth
The tape is based on the structure of acoustic phenomena and the psychological dynamics of a man screaming at the end of a long dark corridor. With each successive scream, the camera point of view is hurtled at high velocity along the length of the hallway in decreasing increments. The corridor and the cinematic structuring of the camera’s advance act as metaphors for passage and transition between two worlds, bridged by the individual’s carthartic screams.
Bill Viola (US), Video, 9 min, 1976
