Undisputed

Undisputed is an installation that explores the performance aspect of political speeches. On one side of the screen, a speech scrolls down through a teleprompter device. The speech follows the language and structure of public addresses given by two opposing elected officials who addressed the United Nations assembly. The original speeches were edited to use only transitional words that give public addresses their official tone, language, and framework. Removed from its core message, the speech functions as a theatrical performance. On the other side of the screen, a video compilation of audience clapping at the United States Congress: State of the Union addresses.
