Freedom! Justice! Yeah!

2000

This piece takes the form of a neverending looped political pop anthem. It was installed on video monitors in two public areas in the manner of MTV. It is the companion piece to Tony Blair and a supporting piece to Freedom Songs. It is at once about the illusion of power and the liberating possibilities that arise when banal words are repeated in musical form.
