This video continues my discussion of the video medium and its loop feature, which is nowadays being taken for granted. In the video two actors are rehearsing a dialogue. The text, which was explicitly developed for this video, is very existentialist, yet the relationship between the two people in the video is kept a secret. The video seems to be in a loop, but in reality it is not. Each time the actors have finished one part of the text, they start anew. Not only does each performance repeat the original act as a quotation, but is further enlarged each time it is reenacted. Everything is repeated exactly and precisely; every word, every motion is like a rehearsed choreography.
