The term "Conversation Piece", used to categorize a painting genre depicting the social activities of the 18th century, evokes an aural dimension in a period where no audio-visual construct outside live theatre was in existence. The combination of stage-trained actors, mobile audio technologies, and nostalgic visual effects that suggest absence—such as blue screen compositing—are used in place of painting in this video series.
