SY Black hole sun shows several a capella versions of the titled song interpreted by Saudia Young. Four takes are systematically layered visually and sonically, creating a slightly chaotic effect that in times becomes harmonious. The layering emphasizes the slight differences in interpretation as well as the matching moments. The human element transcends the mechanical repetition.
This video is part of an immersive multimedia installation titled: The exhaustion of Saudia Young created for the inaugural BRIC Biennial in Brooklyn (Dec. 2014). The installation elaborates on the themes of contemporary portraiture and exhaustive study, surveying the Art of portrait while exploring its near exhaustion by representing its sole subject, Saudia Young (SY), ad nauseam.
