Using animated black and white photographs with sound, Interior Lights depicts an imaginary house that is a composite of views drawn from different homes. The film features ordinary lamps that reveal close ups of furniture and objects such as family photographs, artwork, and other personal effects on display. The soundtrack, composed by Jason Sloan, is drawn from audio recordings of the sound generated by the electromagnetic field unique to each light source depicted in the video. Light and sound are the connecting threads as the camera makes its way from the basement to the attic, highlighting intimate details of domestic life along the way.
