APOGEE- Each video channel shows a character in Jean-Paul Sartre's existentialist one-act play "No Exit." Speaking with individual Morse code frequencies instead of voices, the characters remain synchronized, enacting the entire play. Each channel is a single take, where the actors were asked to open and close their mouths at precisely timed intervals. Silently sitting without moving or emoting, the performances eventually take a toll on the actors' bodies, paralleling the type of torture that Sartre's characters endure in his version of hell as described in "No Exit."
