Brody Condon - Without Sun (2008)
Without Sun (Video), 2008
Found performance documentation, 15 min
Named after the classic Chris Marker video Sans Soleil, Condon’s Without Sun is a edited compilation of “found performances” of individuals on a psychedelic substance. Images and sounds from the various clips collected from the internet overlap and combine into one seamless experience, creating a 15 minute pseudo-narrative focused on the exterior surface of their "projection of self" into visionary worlds. Condon’s global players in Without Sun have recorded themselves looking at the camera this time. Taking up where Marker left off, these (inner) travelogues question memory, perception, and the effects of current participatory media and technology on culture.
