Auditorium is a single angle, single take video which presents in real time the total eclipse of the sun in the summer of ‘99. The title is suggestive of how a phenomenon is mediated through language; of how the eclipse was experienced as event. Increasingly cinema is a facet of language, with moving image/narrative film used as a way of describing the real. As a bystander commented just before totality, “It’s like the lights going down in a cinema”.
