Immerse yourself in 1977 by Jordan Basement, an audio exploration of the complexities of love.
Artist: Jordan Baseman
Materials: Sound Installation
1977 is a sound work featuring an elderly woman from Omaha, Nebraska. We hear her speaking about her out of body experience that created radical change in her life and eventually led to her love for a man who she initially rejects: refuses and resists, only to then spend the next 40 years of her life with her persistent beau. We hear her describe, in detail, her feelings as she witnesses her man die. The 15 minute long work is constructed from 5 hours of interviews recorded over a number of weeks. For reasons of privacy, the narrator of 1977 wishes to remain anonymous.
