Reading aloud to you

Reading aloud to you was shown as part of the upcoming Arthouse project (curated by Brigid Noone) Adelaide, May 2014.

Reading aloud to you is a ongoing collection of found moments. I set out with my camera to look for people reading quietly in public. I wait on trains, in libraries, parks and bus stops in the hope that people will allow me to record them reading aloud a short passage from whatever text (book, newspaper, mobile device) they are engrossed in. These are not rehearsed performances. There are moments of hesitancy and generosity in the footage that reflect both the reader’s and my connections and discomforts. This collection started in May 2012.
