Noise + Thirst

Noise + Thirst is a video installation by Leila Weefur. It presents Blackness as an inhabitant of the space between noise & silence and thirst & satisfaction. The accompanying sound collage, a gestalt of Black masculinity, asks how closely must we scrutinize our Blackness to bear witness to a naturally occurring contrast?

Interview with Sam Vernon

Sam and I are studio neighbors at Real Time and Space in Downtown Oakland.
