22 minute loop with internet audio fragments, view video
Approximately 200 photographs of significant moments from the last 50 years with personal images dissolve and re-eppear in an almost perpertual cycle akin to history itself. The chronological sequence contains both important and little known documentary images of historic events from the Holocaust to the Iraq conflict. Personal imagery including Novak's family snapshots, self-portraits, and travel photographs from the same periods are interwoven with the media imagery.
Selected audio fragments, taken from on-line audio archives, play randomly alongside the projected images. Viewers, finding themselves situated in the midst of visceral imagery and constantly stimulated by the random audio streams are challenged to consider their own individual perspective of these events.
