Audience, from The Chuck Close Tapes
Discarded VHS tapes from a collection that was allegedly made by the artist Chuck Close. Their unconfirmed origin leads to the question of how identity is stored in the media that we record and hoard, and ultimately throw away.

E-waste is everywhere, being shipped around the world via a toxic constellation of governments and multi-national corporations. Project Project will challenge the economies of e-waste and media art by crafting video projectors and video pieces from discarded electronics and media scavenged by the artist around the world. Due to their hacked, “DIY” nature, each projector will have output quirks that present compelling parameters for their associated media pieces. Christensen will develop video and animation pieces using found footage from discarded media sources and imagery gathered from the e-wasted landscapes encountered on her journeys.
