Frame Work

In Frame Work, the camera follows a woman searching for her dog that seems to have run off to hunt. In this nestling-dolls structure—dog searching for a bird, woman looking for the dog—where the camera is hunting for something that isn’t quite named in the video, the predictable climax is denied. In lieu of a narrative resolution, Frame Work offers as its meditation the tension between the person filming and the device, the desire for an image and the limit of the digital frame.
