Present 2012


Present is a video portrait of 11 life size people in which a live musician plays them music from their past or their own cultural or ethnic background. Viewers will be able to see the positive influence of the music through the subjects’ own idiosyncratic responses, ranging from a faint smile to clapping and even dancing and singing. The video installation was produced by Residency Unlimited and was shot at the Shore Hill care home in New York City in the fall of 2012.
