Museum Exhibition

Christian Marclay at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California, USA


25 August - 11 November 2019

In Sound Stories, Christian Marclay fuses art and technology, using social media messages as raw material. A collaboration between the artist and Snapchat, this innovative project draws on the sounds and images of everyday life found on the multimedia messaging app Snapchat. Using algorithms created by a team of engineers at Snap Inc., Marclay experiments with millions of publicly posted Snapchat videos to create five immersive audiovisual installations, two of which are interactive.

Rooted in a sampling aesthetic fundamental to Marclay’s work, these installations respond to the storytelling available on Snapchat and visitors’ sounds and movements in the gallery space.
