Near Real Time Video
Intrinsically circular and episodic in form, Near Real Time reflects on our contemporary relationship with images, seen through the historical prism of a pioneering community television project. Their last surviving taped broadcasts provide the starting point for Pickering's portrayal of a collective imagination and the ways in which it crystallised a relationship to camera. The depicted characters seem adrift as they mouth a shared monologue, looking to understand their status as images in situations that appear mutable and plastic.
