"Hello World! or: How I Learned to Stop Listening and Love the Noise"
Christopher Baker

When I first saw Baker's piece I was overwhelmed by the noise and visual stimulation. There are thousands of thousands of faces from Youtube.com all talking at once. It's everyone’s opinion on everything all at once in one space. When you listen to it long enough it's almost a kind of music. Every so often you can pick out someone saying something but all in all it blends together. The shadows on a the wall created by the viewer blocking the projection put you in the project and into the mass of people. It turns the viewer into another person with an opinion in the sea of people with opinions. I very much enjoyed this exhibit.
