2 Mothers, 2 Daughters, 2 Sisters, 2 Brothers, 1 Father

2Mothers, 2Daughters.... is a DVD installation featuring a fifty year old female adoptee. Each of her five genetic and four adopted family members are displayed on separate 5.6" flat panel LCD video displays, reading selections from the book, "The Dependent Gene" by David S. Moore. The viewer sees ten close up views of the lips of each person, but for the most part without hearing the audio. Occasionally the group will recite a short passage aloud simultaneously. Each video sequence is burned to DVD and each repetition of the approximately twenty minute reading is slightly different.
