Samba, installation view, audio work/CD, 2002
In Samba 17 artists were asked to produce an audio work for a CD using the Nokia ‘Samba’ ring tone as a starting point. The cultural origin and destination of ‘the samba’ becomes confused; South American culture processed through multi-national commerce and then re-appropriated by rock bands, fine artists and DJs. Samba was installed as the on hold music at the Great Eastern Hotel.
