Appropriation

The Devoid Of Sound
Single Channel Video
Duration: 5:02


The object of The Devoid Of Sound was to create a piece that seemed to have no modification from the original. After viewing the original The "Nature" of Sound, I came to the realization that most of what was being presented seemed to be blatantly obvious, at least in todays world. So with that I decided to make the attempt to create a piece in which everything that was originally presented was then reversed to the opposite. 

It seems to have ended up in a slightly unusual or humorous way, where Jimmy can somehow hear everything spoken to him but the experiments that his cousin is showing don't register or they just don't work. It could be also looked at in a way that Jimmy is unaware of time. He can't hear the watch, bell or whistle, which are all markers or signals of time.
