Unmade up (2002) from Rachel Garfield on Vimeo.

Unmade up is an 8-minute looped video installation, which explores the contradictions of sexual attraction and the pressures of minority groups to marry within ‘their’ community in this case, specifically the Jewish community. The viewer alternately watches a women listening to multi-layered dialogue of voices talking candidly about attraction to the opposite sex, and the same woman flirting with the camera. The dialogue is made up of snatches of conversations taken from a wide range of contributors. The video is multi-layered, poignant and often funny. It is conceived as an installation with quadraphonic sound. The viewer stands in the room hearing the voices from the four corners of the room (in each corner a speaker and the image is either to be projected or shown on a monitor, depending on the overall installation space)
