When I was in college, I had this friend Todd who wanted to start a “band” where we would lip-sinc to prerecorded music and secretly video tape the audiences reaction, and use that footage towards some sort of video art jam. We were too lazy and never saw this idea through to fruition.
Now, Tim Davis (a stellar photographer) has pretty much seen this same idea through. In his series “My Audience” he photographs the audience (or lack of) that come to hear him at various talks and book signings.
Its funny stuff.
