Who Am I? 3: Sound and Fury.

1min 45" single video installation on monitor. 2003

“[Life] is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” (Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5)

Identity or self-awareness is sometimes amorphous in modern society. Images and sounds abound and are overflowing all around, and individual selves are drowning amidst them, failing to take form, failing to be given a name. The avatar in cyberspace in the twenty-first century is a reverberation of Shakespeare of 400 hundred years ago.
