[ISEA2013] Artist Statement: Scott Morrison – oprahagogo (2005)

Artist Statement

oprahagogo “came about by watching people who were watching people on the TV screen”. The follow-on reactions of people in the real time world was married amazingly with the broadcasted, edited audience reactions of a ‘live’ studio environment; “Scott thought, “let’s party”, so he took them to the Queen, to the bee’s knees. She knows a good party.”

  • Scott Morrison (Melbourne, AU) is a sound and video artist whose practice encompasses live performance, gallery installation, and festival screenings focused towards the synergistic properties of the moving image. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions around Australia, and his audiovisual works have screened extensively nationally and abroad. Morrison has released work as limited editions with Room40, and is represented by Beam Contemporary, Melbourne.
