Yellowshirt, Yemen

Yellowshirt, Yemen (2011)

Yellowshirt, Yemen deconstructs documents form the Wikileaks scandal of 2010. The work is a continuation from the piece Something Democratic in 2010?, but in this iteration the viewer loses control. A computer voice recites a 13 hour, 57 minute, and 47 second loop of alphabetized audio from the Wikileaks documents of 2010. The computer tries to resolve accentuation issues to no avail and bombards the listener with an endless sentence.
