Bang Bang is an immersive installation that combines video, performance, and synthetic fringe. fringe. It is the second artwork in the Sapphic Serenade series.
For Bang Bang, a single figure is projected through five curtains of yellow fringe that are suspended from the ceiling. Similar to a bird in a cage, the figure serenades viewers by lip synching the original lyrics from Sonny Bono's 1975 song, “Bang Bang” as a looping performance. The repetitious slowing of time creates a tender and nostalgic space, holding attention, while also exploring the relationship between technology, language and identity.
