Falling Up

1:30 min excerpt

Lisa Steele & Kim Tomczak. 2007. Video, colour, sound. 6:00

A couple – visible only as shadows – experience the architecture of a city as they pursue a dangerous – but deliciously exciting – fall into love. The on-screen text takes the form of an Elizabethean love sonnet crossed with text-messaging.

“Right here right now I love being here with u”

“Uh oh o-o-o-o-o baby it’s cold outside Here comes the snow”

“Yr eyes r so-o-o- Yr lips r so-o-o-o- ha ha ha ha ha uh oh yr skin is soo-o-o”

“Yr room is on my second floor going up now”
