"Accumulation" High Definition Video with Sound Duration: 4 min 00 sec. Loop. Single Channel Video Projection Aspect Ratio 16:9, 2 Ch Stereo Installation dimensions variable Accumulation is an experimental video by the collaborative team of Hillerbrand+Magsamen. Through performance, Accumulation interstices between art and the contemporary American family by playfully and poetically exploring perceptions of emotions, family, consumerism and media within a uniquely American subjectivity. In Accumulation, the innocence of a child dangles in a dark void and then a couple piles up tons of stuff from their garage: lawn mower, toys, tools, Christmas lights, and more into a mountain that they climb up as a means to get to another space. An auctioneer rambles away and the viewer is left to decide if the couple is buying or selling their material, physical and emotional accumulation.
