  • AFFECTED AND/OR EFFECTED

    1974. USA. Directed by Lawrence Weiner. With Kathryn Bigelow. In this short video about the relationship between artist intent and audience reception, a woman reads from a book while voice-overs intone the words “affected” and “and/or effected.” The duality is further expressed in the work’s distinct treatment of audio and visual components, a recurring motif in Bigelow’s collaborations with Weiner. 20 min.

  • DONE TO

    1974. USA. Directed by Lawrence Weiner. With Kathryn Bigelow, Sharon Haskell. Two women converse on a couch in this film, an examination of dissonance with picture and sound out of sync. The soundtrack, at times conversational and cacophonous, appears to converge with the action onscreen only to diverge again in a rhythmic pattern. A voice-over repetition of the phrase “and then” plays with the concept of film projection, where frames repeatedly follow one another to create a seamless moving image. 20 min.

  • GREEN AS WELL AS BLUE AS WELL AS RED

    1975–76. USA. Directed by Lawrence Weiner. With Tina Girouard, Suzanne Harris. Commentary by Kathryn Bigelow, Weiner. Two performers at a table interact with each other and manipulate books and poker chips placed in front of them, while Bigelow and Weiner carry on a discourse off-camera about the implications of the action. This self-referential short ponders the structure and presentation of such a setup. 18 min.

  • ALTERED TO SUIT

    1979. USA. Directed by Lawrence Weiner. Edited by Kathryn Bigelow, Gerrit Hilhorst. Produced and script consultation by Bigelow. Unrelated scenes and an out-of-sync soundtrack lend this short narrative centered on four characters—a couple, their child, and a family friend—a measure of incongruity. With no defined start or finish, “the presentation functions as simple insight into a personal realm” (Alice Weiner). 23 min.
