Statement

'Sonny & Cher' was a short video piece about literal breakdown of communication between a couple. The couple's voices are represented as pure sound that becomes increasingly distorted with each repeat of the looped argument. Their breakdown represents the degradation of sound and Sonny & Cher's own real-life relationship as an aspect of pop culture.

Shown at Kent Institute of Art & Design and Margate Rocks Contemporary Art Festival in 2005.
