|Abstract: ||A single screen 8 minute video projection with sound. In a humorous and moving way the voice of a hotel maid stages a historical and imaginative encounter with a familiar place: a hotel room. A distinctive aspect of the piece is the way that the text for the voice is constructed. Rooney interviewed three hotel maids, but in scripting their words deliberately blurred the line between truth and fiction, by turning the three voices into one monologue. This approach foregrounds the agency of himself as the maker of the work, the presence of any ‘authentic voice’ will always be mediated and manipulated.|
