    Infrared video stills

    To film Reduction, Justine Cooper & Joey Stein worked with an industrial-grade infared camera that registers longer wavelengths (i.e. heat), as opposed to the visible electromagnetic spectrum. In the absence of those visible light waves, we see below the surface of the skin to the delicate, hot threads of veins and arteries. The dialogue between the two characters, in contrast to the complexity of the infared technology, reduces language to a crude or primal communication system.
