WHITE NOISE

1999
Installation, Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco, CA (US)
Hand-cast records, record jackets, turntables, headphones, display shelf, flyer edition

Playable hand-cast polyurethane plastic records of popular albums from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The records are modified during the casting process to yield random, repetition-based distortions. As source material well-known, overplayed albums were used. Each record side features a different artist and is loosely paired according to genre: Led Zepplin/The Doors, Madonna/Michael Jackson, Boston/Genesis ect. Each record side contains only half the original sonic material (molded twice and cast together) to form one continuous playable surface. Nine unique double-sided records produced with artist designed and fabricated white modular display unit, "ready-bought" turntable and headphones. Edition of 6 each.
