Single-Channel SD Video
Television Monitor, DVD Player
Variable Dimensions



A series of video monitors are buried underground in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The screen lies flush with the earth, displaying a pair of hands caressing the earth that was once there. Power is borrowed from outdoor electrical outlets nearby. Extension cords and DVD players are buried underground, out of view.
