Re: – Bruce

Re: is an epistolary project in the form a single-channel video that invites the viewer into the inbox of BRUCE, a video art duo. Constructed from a series of documents mediated through email over the course of 11 months, Re: invites the viewer to witness the intimate exchange between the two collaborators who trade secrets about animals, kings, and dreams.

The BRUCE partnership is based on a shared attention to archives in relation to storytelling and media. Bruce has contrasting points of interest that converge into important binaries: popular culture/personal mythologies, stereotypes/archetypes, and fragmentation/automation. BRUCE is foremost a process-based collaboration using these points of contrast to investigate the intersection of storytelling and technology.
