Work from Noir - video (here).
“The video documents a night in my Los Angeles neighborhood during a half-year stay in 2008. Monitoring gang activity, police helicopters circled the neighborhood on a regular basis. On a particularly noisy night, I went out to capture some sound. Within minutes, I heard gunshots. Over a black screen, Noir captures these gunshots and conversations with several residents and passers-by who try to make sense of what they heard and didn’t hear, saw and didn’t see. The video is either shown in a screening or as a monitor installation in an exhibition space.” – Mirko Martin
