The Sound of Silence by Vicki Bennett (People Like Us)
Transmitting from speakers within the bookshelves of the National Art Library
The library encourages silence, yet it is full of words. The broadcast medium is similar – it is all around us yet we have to tune in to actually hear it.
The radio show fishes from the wide spectrum picked up when using a radio receiver, from outer space to our inner world.
There really is no such thing as silence. Only when we begin to be quiet do we really start to hear what is going on.
Vicki Bennett & Gregor Weichbrodt, Mark Leahy, Will Montgomery

Now available for online viewing! The documentary about People Like Us.
British artist Vicki Bennett takes you on a roller coaster-ride with her art project People Like Us. In performances, videos, collages and music, her amazing editing techniques and sense of humor leave you flabbergasted and enthusiastic at the same time. People Like Us is like free-zone where appropriation meets alchemy, humor meets social critique and the boundless imagination meets reality.
