a series of misunderstandings
6 channel audio recording, xerox prints
This work developed a list of statements generated through the game of broken telephone or the whispering game. Beginning with a sentence taken from Chris Kraus’ ‘I Love Dick’ which reads: because she does not express herself in theoretical language, no one expects too much from her and she is used to tripping out on layers of complexity in total silence the sentence was passed through 50 people until the meaning had completely changed. The final statement ended with, “I really like birds”. It was displayed as a large-scale wall text readable from outside the gallery, and a 6-channel audio installation placed in an adjoining room.
