High Art (iPod Serenade) 2011 – ongoing (stills from Apple Store, Covent Garden and Goldsmiths )
Across dual sites I serenade broken iPods. In the gallery I am given the illusion of great physical height through sitting on top of a ladder or stood on a plinth disguised as a dress. I serenade two of my broken iPods.
In the Apple Store I ask a genius why my iPods broke within days of the warranties. He explains. I begin to sing Che Faro Senza Euridice? from Gluck’s Orfeo and Euridice (1762) as a manifestation of consumer frustration and a questioning of the values of live music vs. recorded music.
