  • Framing Device is a timeline structured (or framed by) the need for perhaps one or three individuals to maintain a high-level secret.  It is therefore a work about social media and also Google downloads.  The video takes place over a thirty-seven day duration.  Each day is characterized by different drawings, either original or downloaded from Google.  On some days, there is a voice-over commenting on the process of maintaining the secret as well as on world and local events or issues. On many days, there are no voice-overs.
