THE PARTY TRICK
Two new video pieces/installation proposals (Discourse and The Party Trick) include six iPhones in the midst of a call with each other while on speaker phone. In Discourse, a television playing static white noise projects in a delayed manner through the phones while competing for attention.
As Wolf Vostell so stated "The TV set is declared to be the sculpture of the twentieth century," (1958) and so shall it fall into obsolescence.
Big thanks to everyone who helped out by coming in and bringing your iPhones. Also very thankful for Robin who helped out with audio, last minute.
Keep your eyes peeled for the house fly (approx 2:05) in Discourse.
