digital video, 3 minutes 30 seconds, 2007
The two channel video “Mob Silence” is an example of ancient Dionysian ritual acted out in contemporary society where the partakers abandon individual identity and form a mob of ritualized violence for the destruction of a product. The left channel shows an effigy of the opposing sports team which is also revealed to be of the opposing sex. The right channel shows a smoldering pile on dirty concrete, perhaps a remnant of what ritual has become. The shaky handheld quality of the video transforms the author/viewer into a participant.
