Video 2019 The National Museum of American History, Washington, D.C
The short film “Four Objects” explores an ensemble of artifacts from the Medical Science Collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of History. These objects never reveal themselves to the camera, but voice their history through speech synthesizers and a pair of gloved hands. A guessing game ensues, both intimate and disembodied.
