Music Video I, II and III
1986 – 1986 - 1:10, 0:55 and 1:20 min
The characteristics of an ordinary video clip are the flow of synthetic images, the use of almost every effect available within a three-minute period, and the thus resulting restlessness. My video clips are very boring. You see only a record turning and the arm of the record-player move groove by groove toward the middle of the record. In "Music Video I," you hear Bill Haley rocking. Marilyn Monroe is singing in "Music Video II." "Music Video III" even works without any record at all: here, the Andrew Sisters are stepping on the blank record-player. In film and video, the eye and the ear, the visual and the acoustic, video and audio are two separate components and are combined at random. An illusion. You don't hear the record you see. You don't see the record you hear.
