<em>Spin 100</em>
 

Daniel Canogar
Spin 100, 2010
100 DVDs, video projector, speakers
Dimensions variable
4 min, loop
Edition of 3

The copied contents of 100 discarded DVDs are projected back onto their surface, revealing the moving images trapped within the discs. Due to the DVDs’ mirrored surfaces, the projections are reflected onto the opposite wall, creating an abstract double of the films. By layering the diverse soundtracks of the DVDs, an acoustic cacophony rises and subsides throughout the video loop. The piece explores the short life expectancy of the technologies we cast off, and how we are a society entranced by flickering images and the “light-mirrors” we create.
