Rock n' Roll
2008 - Present
For the series of videos entitled Rock n' Roll, I recorded multiple performances of the band The Nights with the camera facing the audience. I then edited the footage removing everything but the clapping and mumbling of the audience in between songs. Shown in haphazard clusters of monitors, or as individual single channel looped pieces, the isolated incidental noise becomes at once cacophonous, funny, joyous and oddly pathetic.
Size is wholly dependant on the number and scale of the monitors in the installation.
