Cinema may be dying but aspects of its experience are ubiquitous- its echoes are found in having ones hearing tested in a sound proof booth or sitting at the kitchen table watching a downloaded film.Often, when a film is re-shot in a cinema illegally it is at an oblique angle and some of the image is lost. HDHB uses this re-framing and compression to critique hierarchies of image quality. It suggests industrial modes of calibration as a process of sensory normalisation.
