Political STATES

Political STATES (2012)

Political STATES is an algorithmic video that explores a manufactured dialog between Barack Obama and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. My interest came from listening to how each President spoke certain words indicative of their respective political and social climates. The video establishes a space that is at once historic and present and that is only possible through recorded media. The movement of the mouths combined with the spoken words creates a shifting composition of visuals, audio, and time.
