Here comes a mish mash of American tape junk from the late-20th century, including shopping mall karaoke booth recordings, kids playing with their tape decks, rambling raps, salesmen, voicemail recordings – it’s all there. What a strange time. Just like today. There's real beauty in this kind of warped analogue self-documentation; the ancestor to today's crystalline selfies. Both times seem to scream a hope and a desire simply to be seen, heard, and acknowledged.
