Noah Scalin: Dead Media

"Dead Media" is a site-specific installation created by Skull-A-Day's Noah Scalin out of 497 VHS videotapes. The piece, which is approximately 20 feet long by 9 feet wide, was built in the style of the skull in Holbein's The Ambassadors and meant to be viewed from a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. The installation will be on display at the TCC Visual Arts Center in Portsmouth, Virginia from September 15 through November 1st, after which it will be dismantled and used to create new artworks by the students of Tidewater Community College.
