Labor Camp Study Room Videos

Video components of the Labor Camp Study Room Series

Complementing the selection of forty Labor Camp audio works presented within the Study Room framework is a series of nearly 200 short video pieces. They are organized into two groups: Study Room Indexes (presenting short phrases referencing multiple historical research materials), and English translations of the poems by Mao Tse-tung.

Each video captures the act of writing the text on a blackboard, and subsequently, erasing the board clean. User choices on the Study Room desk trigger changes in the video stream, which in the absence of user activity randomizes video section sequence, constructing an ongoing textual narrative.
