Voice: Danyel Ferrari, 5 Minutes.
Everybody Knows is the first in a series is the first in a series of what I call Conversation Pieces. The video and the sound were recorded separately in the week following George W. Bush s reelection in 2004. In those first few days, there was such high public emotion around the election and around the international an domestic issues debated during the campaign. I wanted to somehow document this strange public emotion, so I began asking people two questions- How do you feel about it? & What do you think about it? Although I did not identify it , everybody knew what I was asking. What is not stated is sometimes more important than what is. Of the interviews, I chose this one with Danyel Ferrari as the soundtrack to the video, which is my response to the same questions. It is a kind of conversation between us. The spactators are invited to enter into this dialogue and may send responses to the questions to:
