About

"Murphy combines several kinds of imagery (footage from old movies, passages of what appear to be auditions of some sort, apparently diaristic images ...) and two kinds of sound (the track from a preview of a film called Dirty Pictures and passages of canned laughter), in such a way as to reveal the ambiguity of personal and cultural significations once they are removed from their usual contexts." – Scott MacDonald, Afterimage
