idk (2009)

idk is a collection of 60 single-second videos discovered on YouTube. Scraps of visual and sound information flicking relentlessly through: mistaken party 'photos', a goat wandering in the desert, an American flag fluttering over a mobile home, dark empty rooms, static. These series of videos - with their creators apologising for low batteries or recording accidents - are viewed as failures, some of the least intentional videos on the site. The work continues an interest in liminal audio and intermediary pieces - transferring the role of image/sound creation, composition and timing to others.
