Liz Rodda Total Body
Total Body is the result of collecting and sorting through found video and audio clips over a period of several years. The footage, culled from a sea of TV clips, music videos and vlogs, takes on new significance in an isolated viewing space in which there is a psychological relationship between recordings of several unidentifiable individuals. The audio, a spoken version of a text by the Roman philosopher and poet Lucretius, serves as a lens through which to view the videos. Questions arise regarding the evaluation of meaning, human impulses and philosophical assumptions.
