One Rock & One Stone
2-channel video 
30 minutes 14 seconds 
2019

A conversation of one hundred recorded actions using one rock and one stone. 

Carrying similar spherical rocks/stones, Lenka Clayton and Phillip Andrew Lewis implicate these objects as actors in an ongoing narrative about connectivity, proximity, synchronization, and the perpetual strangeness of time. 

The film is an evolving call and response made over the course of a year, while living 700 miles apart. Primarily filmed at home or in the studio, the actions are made quickly and with little production, using the economy of location and materials at hand. Each section was sent via cell phone, triggering the next response. The film flows through an abstract set of unfolding actions, creating moods of suspense, comedy, drama, sensuality, and the bizarre.
