THE SAME PROBLEM 1
2009, video (4 minutes), print edition
Every time he woke up, it was the same problem. An ambiguous call and response is enacted between a roaring, stormy ocean and a solitary figure whose wailing lament is fashioned from oohs and aahs sampled from pop music. The ocean, too, is a composite of footage from diverse film sources, a catalogue of storms remembered or imagined. Like a siren the singer howls at his sublime interlocutor until his voice is engulfed, overwhelmed and silenced.
