Program Description

In "East Ended Tape" Peter Campus and Susan Dowling are the subjects of a series of video portraits. The shadow of Dowling's hand passes over her face slowly, obscuring her features. Campus wraps Saran Wrap around his face. Two halves of Dowling's face come together through superimposition as she turns her head around. Campus' face disappears into a cloud of smoke. The work is approximately seven minutes long.
