Trevor (1999) features manipulated video footage of musician Trevor Wishart which is manipulated to electronically slur his words into unrecognizable stutters or stretched out abstract sound. Attempts to
understand what he is trying to communicate are frustrated as both he and the viewer are
subjected to digital control. The incomprehensible utterances begin to seem like a rhythm that highlights correspondences between seeing and hearing, while drawing viewers’ attention to their own expectations about performance and installation.  This work was exhibited as part of What Sound Does a Color Make at Eyebeam Atelier.
