2012

Personal Recording

Two tape players, one mixtape, and one recording tape. One player plays a mixtape for the two hours of the reception, while the other records this audio as well as noise from the reception: friends talking, leaving messages, and party poppers popping.

The tracklist was also printed as the exhibition statement.
