Deborah stratman
Hacked Circuit
Doc. expérimental | hdv | couleur | 15'9'' | USA | 2014
Multiple layers of fabrication and imposition are laid bare by this fluidly choreographed, single-shot embodiment of control. While portraying sound artists at work, typically invisible support mechanisms of filmmaking are exposed, as are governmental violations of individual privacy. Filmic quotations ground Hacked Circuit, evoking paranoia, and a sense of conviction alongside a lack of certainty about what is visible. Complications of the seen, the known, the heard and the undetectable provide thematic parallels between the stagecraft of Foley and a pervasive climate of government surveillance.
Chicago-based artist and filmmaker Deborah Stratman makes work that investigates issues of power, control and belief, exploring how places, ideas, and society are intertwined. Non-prescriptive, her works pose a series of problems that allow for complex readings of the questions being asked.
