What if the spaces associated with the mutually dependent media of film and video are programmatically crossbred? The public spectacle of movie-going and the individual ritual of video selection are spliced together along a continuous seam, allowing for visual, auditory, and spatial exchanges. Individual movie theaters are stacked with their screens forming an animated facade. The video store sneaks into the movies, occupying the space between the stacked theaters. When seen from the video store, the current movies are framed as previews for forthcoming video releases.
