Random Interference explores the afterlife of images and the experience of looking at photographs as a disruptive encounter. The installation at PHOTOVILLE will include a time-based projection as well as approximately 5,000 front-page sections of The New York Times saved since March 1999 when NATO bombed Belgrade during the Kosovo war. Projected floor to ceiling on the back wall of the container will be the piece Random Interference, a continuous loop with the top and bottom halves of the images fading in and out in a random order creating different image permutations. The juxtaposition of the ephemeral projection and the physical newspapers are a timely exploration of contemporary methods of reception and transmission of both personal and institutional forms of memory.
