Ansaphone

ANSAPHONE is a collection of video portraits recorded on a specially made spinning camera.

However, each person's portrait or appearance in the video is determined by the length of the ansaphone message they have left on the artist's home answermachine at one time or another. The voices are chiefly friends and often sound frail or emotional in some way or other. Incidentally, two of the voices are those of Martin Amis and Suzanne Moore.
