Saatchi Gallery Displays 5,000 Internet Video Diaries Simultaneously

Saatchi Gallery Displays 5,000 Internet Video Diaries Simultaneously

Christopher Baker's audio visual exhibit 'Hello World!' comments on the cacophony of participatory online media.

Emma Hutchings

The large-scale audio visual installation Hello World! Or: How I Learned to Stop Listening and Love the Noise was created by Chicago-based artist Christopher Baker. Currently on show at the Saatchi Gallery in London, UK, the exhibit is comprised of 5,000 video diaries gathered from the internet.

Each of the videos feature an individual speaking candidly to an imagined audience from a private space such as their bedroom or kitchen. The multi-channel sound composition allows visitors to listen to a single speaker or become immersed in the overall noise. The installation effectively calls attention to the cacophony of online voices that participatory media is creating in today’s society. It is described as “a meditation on the contemporary plight of democratic, participative media and the fundamental human desire to be heard.” Check out the Hello World! exhibit in the video below:
