RANCOROUS CALL

2006 / animation, English voice-over / 1 min

Echoing through time the words from a speech originally held in 1775 with depth of panoptical dimensions. Barricades of artificial control mechanisms are installed to protect us from our selves - the ever expanding distance between us.

Rancorous Call consists of imagery of surveillance cameras arranged in a symphony to Sir Patrick Henry's words uttered at St John's Church in Richmond, USA, and here interpreted by Richard Shumann.
Completely based on found footages and sound collected from the Internet.

Collaboration with Anna Viola Hallberg.
