10 Minute Encounter is a video installation played across 9 CRT televisions.  Each television displays a different 10 minute video which features a pair of hands clapping, culminating in a deafening and distorted applause.  The audience progress through a cycle of emotions; the initial excitement of being applauded becomes an awkward embarrassment, prompting growing unease.  The added pressure of viewing the piece as part of a group causes individuals to stay despite their discomfort.
