Emily's Video
Eva and Franco Mattes

23 April - 11 May 2013

 

Emily's Video presents the reactions of random volunteers who replied to an online call by Eva and Franco Mattes to watch "the worst video ever." The original video - sourced from the “Dark Net”, the internet's disturbing alter ego - has been destroyed, with these second hand experiences the only proof of its existence. Mimicing the format of YouTube “reaction videos”, Emily's Video prompts disbelief, fear, anger, disgust, and nervous laughter. Willing participants hide their eyes, lambast the maker of the video, or simply walk away, whilst the viewer of the work eagerly awaits the next response.
