Home, taped is a short exploration of surtitling live performance and treating intimate meaning with distance and alienation. It features the voice of my mother and my two brothers and the surrounding sounds of my home. These sounds of the domestic are paired with the meticulous taping of the lines and borders of my room in Hungary. It is an effort to recreate an absent space and to capture the feeling of being home.
