1/3

Subdue - 2002
3 channel video with 2 audio tracks on 3 monitors with amp & speakers
Duration: 3 minutes with panned stereo audio

A lullaby draws one towards a singing mouth overlaid with a black square. This reveals itself to be an inset image of a woman talking animatedly but without accompanying audio. On either side is a small video of a child. From a close distance to these images, a second sound track is heard of the woman cajoling the children.
