The Document Remains the Same, a long take captured by a cell phone camera, presents an unstable set of possibilities ranging from the tracing of a path across the city of Beirut, the aftermath of a hotel explosion by an ISIS suicide bomber, an interpersonal negotiation recorded shortly after the event and the roving eye of a cell phone fixed to a searching body. The piece is an extension of a text-based work and a video installation published under the title, The Color Remains the Same.
