Holt, the main figure in Serra’s video, is linked to the outside world with a microphone and headphones in two signal directions, and tries to respond in a monolog to the fact that she is caught in a “world of double reflections and refractions.” She attempts to grant expression to an experience that corresponds to the complete technical mediatization of a lifeworld: she feels alienated from herself, and this takes on a discursive form in this conceptual video.
