For New York-based artist Lorna Simpson, her inSITE2000 project Duet/Dueto was the first color film she had produced. The work was envisioned as a dual projection using two projectors to create a diptych or split-screen effect where two narratives could unfold in parallel. Filmed exclusively at sites in Tijuana and San Diego, including a hospital, bar, newspaper factory, office, and a home, with the participation of eight local actors, Simpson spent four days with her crew on the film shoot. The final film was on view at the Centro Cultural Tijuana from November 2000 through February 2001. --inSITE2000
