The collaborative practice of Mary and Stephan
 Video excerpt form Whole, 2012, total running time 2:30.


Embarking on an epic adventure, the collaborative artistic team of Hillerbrand-Magsamen creates new levels of interaction, communication and exploration by breaking and cutting holes into their actual home to make a habitrail-like environment where they go nowhere fast.  With conscious forethought, Hillerbrand+Magsamen critically examine the media grammar in our popular culture today by applying a "Hollywood" aesthetic to their work with layered dramatic music, visually rich cinematography, and faced paced editing. This “style” is juxtaposed against the performance-based video that expands the idea of the home video to a completely new level.
