Screenplay: one and one

Screenplay: one and one is a 106-minute two-channel text-based sound installation consisting of two independent audio channels. These are two real-time recordings of me describing two unnamed feature-length narrative films that I am watching with the sound off. This clearly impossible task yields speech recordings that are documents of a confrontation with impediments and a record of the disconnection between cinematic grammar, visual perception and spoken description. In the 2014 iteration of the work, it was exhibited with two grids of drawings made in a parallel fashion: attempting to draw everything I see on screen while watching the films, with a new drawing begun on each scene change.
