I love Anna Bauer's tenacity and energy. And that 4x5 is sexy indeed!

Awesome video on Anna Bauer and her 4x5 portraits. Keep those large format BTS videos comin! 

In the Anna Bauer video, what is that square shaped object that looks like it is held together by tape (it appears at about 3:03-3:04)? 

It looks to me like something to hold some kind of lighting equipment, but I don't think I have ever seen anything like it before.

Adam, I'd guess it's some kind of light modifier, based on a ring flash. Even though it's not round it'd probably give a similar look, but without the round catchlight in the eyes.
