The Man Who Opened the Door to His Apartment

Robert Hamilton

1989, 05:05 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 066.02

This video is about a man who goes to his apartment as dictated by a narrator. The narrator invents the scenario, the man acts out the action, and an accompanying text comments on it all. Originally the story was a call to action for artists whose work only functions in a studio, to insist that the environment outside the studio is where the stuff of 'art' lies.
The video is a free flowing almost stream of thought narrative. A surreal repetitious series of invented scenes where the man is left to write his mother for advice. A whimsical view of the modern artist.
