Keep Your Ear to the Ground

Keep Your Ear to the Ground dwells on the idea of home through a narrative that maneuvers between senses of rootedness and uprootedness. Narrative from Samuel Beckett’s late play Ohio Impromptu is displaced and re-visualized within imagery that recalls the turn of the century experimental film installation, the Cinéorama. Conflating these two texts is a study in the tension that arises between the impulse to wander and the simultaneous attachment to home.
