THE ALIENATED SPECTATOR – 2005

A continuously bouncing basketball, a strobe, and two sound loops, emitted from eight speakers on two columns. The sound loops both ask the spectators: “How does it make you feel?” from within excerpts by Air and Spaceman 3.

The false autonomy of the bouncing basketball reflects the logic of a pop song that asks the audience what it feels. It is a casual paranoia towards the illusion of sovereignity.
The strobe light has a similar quality as the loops – it divides time into separate moments and expresses each thing's dependance on the viewer to be understood as temporal.
