A Day in the Death of Ron
2018

After monitoring a Youtube clip called “Ron’s last breath”—a sober recording in which someone’s final exhalations are heard—a calculation was made considering the duration of the total viewing time since it was uploaded. Ron’s last breath had yet continued for over a week after his passing. This vinyl carries a recording of the consecutive breathing of a day of Youtube views and is amplified solely mechanically.
Sound installation. Altered record player, copper elements, cast epoxy, vinyl record. 40x55x120cm. 17’46”.

Many thanks to the technical support of Victor de Beijer and Boris de Beijer.
