In Dialogue is a four-channel installation that explores the relationship between form and content, and the potential dissonances that stem from creators' and consumers' individual preferences in how they access and express truths. Four groups of practitioners (musicians, dancers, painters, and orators) were asked to respond to an identical prompt. They were encouraged to highlight the unique properties of their respective media in their response. In Dialogue records the conversations among practitioners of various media, inviting participants to reflect on the negotiation of responsibility between creator and consumer in communicating and understanding truths.
