A two channel video.

Two channel. Channel one shows a mime alone in an empty photo-studio hysterically pretending to take a photograph while an audio track taken from YouTube of a young man's absurd diatribe on Islamic religion is appropriated. Channel two shows a recorded computer screenshot of a document being typed on the subject of essential kitchen appliances and communal cooking advice.
