breaking up is easy [2015]

Breaking up is easy is a multi-movement work centered around the concept and material of audial media failures. I chose to work with online streaming and media torrenting (because of their popularity and familiarity) and radio and cassette tapes (because of their trendiness and presence in my community). I exploit the aural and physical familiarity of these mediums while highlighting and extrapolating their common irregularities exposing the beauty in the broken.
