jərˈmān: Mouth by Timothy David Orme
Welcome to the December installment of jərˈmān. This month we have a fantastic video erasure, “Mouth” by Timothy David Orme. The organ is isolated from the face. The mouth becomes mechanical – something to be tuned, a conduit, a passage for hums and vibrations. Is this sacrilegious? Yes.
From the artist: “Mouth” is a short erasure film that visually displays the remaining portions of a 35mm trailer that have not been scraped away, and aurally features the reading of a poem titled, simply, “Mouth.”
