Variation 33

Variation 33, sound and video installation in loop for four televisions, 2013.(extract)

Variation 33 is an installation for 4 televisions. Each screen plays a video where I see myself working on Beethoven’s 32 variations on the piano. The videos are broadcast simultaneously and the sound of each are confused to form a 33rd variation. This piece highlights the notion of work in art, repetition and error as an integral part of the creative process and the work itself.
