2006:

Instants proposition for the site of panoplie.org

Karaoke : "Resurrection karaoke for the humiliated" or "Test to predict potential aggressive behavior" (flash, sound on) This is a sound piece with images of a women on the ground in front of a freezer. The visitor is invited to sing the text that scrolls over the screen. Closing the window of the work will lead the visitor to a page where he is asked to contribute in a collaborative text about violence. The sound is the result of loading the same mp3 several times and so will be slightly different on different machines. Original sound : daccord.mp3: http://www.bram.org/sound
I am aware This is not an easy work. The visitor will have to be able to listen till the end if he wants to be freed of the image of the suffering women. He can also choose to karaoke it and so actualise the resurrection enacted in the text. Closing the window might be like refusing to be implicated in the woman's story and will put the visitor in front of a question about violence.
