Welcome to Los Angeles

Video documentation of my installation for The Meme Machine at Agency Contemporary in Los Angeles. The album Whales Alive,featuring the songs of the humpback whales, improvised jazz music by Paul Winter and Paul Halley, and Leonard Nimoy reciting nautical poetry, was broadcast through the gallery. The transmission interacts with the electromagnetic interference being generated by flashing fluorescent tanning lamps in the sculpture Welcome To Los Angeles. The transmission is then received by the sculpture Dreamcatcher, which contains an antenna that engages with the bodies and energy of visitors.
