nothings_nomeanings is a multimedia collage of found sound and found video. The collage both preserves the material nature of the found objects as well as invigorates them with a new life and identity. The exact quality of every recording - the hiss, the static, the color - is kept intact. The samples represent exactly themselves, snippets of recorded media, no more and no less.  They are not a direct reference to the subject material. They contain within themselves the subject material, but also all of the minutia of recording - the perspective (physical and cultural) of the author, the equipment, and the uniqueness of the conditions of the recording, with the arm positioned exactly thus, or the singer holding the note for an extra 1/100th of a second. All of these details comprise the character of the sample, and the amalgamation of these characters can be startling and beautiful. Yet, at the same time, they also are overwhelmingly nostalgic.
