Random pairs of clips play in sync across two television screens. Together, the clips facilitate the illusion of failed or successful connections between the two phones. Audio reveals that even apparently successful connections avoid conversation.
Over eighty different 90-sec clips randomly playback as synched pairs on two monitors. The two spaces appear to connect or disconnect through an iterative investigation of rings, answers, busy signals, hang-ups, dead lines, and ignored calls.
