Marco Brambilla



Sync is Brambilla’s first sampled video work which features three tightly edited sequences of film clips taken from fight scenes, sex scenes, as well as audience reactions from an archive of films. Running at up to 12 individual shots per second and projected on three suspended screens, the installation puts the viewer in a video crossfire; building violently to a state of sensory overload. Sync is a reflection of the rising threshold to graphic sex and brutality in contemporary popular culture and film.
