Diedra Krieger makes videos about her relationship to the camera, and by proxy, everyone’s relationship to the camera. She takes on the role of the eye and the subject all at once, a sort of Cindy Sherman for video. She also makes temporary public sculptures that invite people to play. In this episode she talks about that as well as about her contribution to Philadelphia Underground, the four-day Design Philadelphia event, ending today, in which eight artists project videos onto the subway concourse walls on the west side of City Hall.
