100 People conjures the imaginary presence of one hundred people, each of whom exists only by virtue of brief descriptions on screen. Framed as a kind of minimalist anti- (or virtual) cinema, the work’s simple presentation of unfolding text on a black background investigates the dynamic capacity of language itself to create images and to summon presence.
