Talking Points (2014)

  • Three-channel digital video

    Talking Points is a political “still life,” in which the staging and affective performances of US politics are brought to the foreground. It is a three channel video, each of which is an editing of C-SPAN footage so that it appears no one speaks. The original footage comes from: a press conference by Obama honoring the death of Nelson Mandela; Chase president Jamie Dimon appearing before the Senate Banking Committee; and a meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as they are questioned about sexual abuse in the military. This excerpt contains only the first channel.
