iPod Art: “Golden Oldies”

iPod Art: “Golden Oldies”

Artist Catherine Forster began examining the world through a microscope as a biologist, now she uses technology to talk about the world.

Her installation “Golden Oldies” features four silent videos inspired by pop songs (“Karaoke classics” she says) played on iPods.

These visual landscapes are inspired by “Tiny Bubbles” (Don Ho, 1966), ‘Under the Boardwalk” (Drifters, 1964), “Spinning Wheel” (Blood Sweat and Tears, 1969), and “Starry Starry Night” (Don McLean, 1971).

“Golden Oldies” was meant to be a humorous take on how people cut themselves off from the world by creating iPod retreats.

Right now, it’s part of a Biennial show in Kentucky, but Forster says the ongoing project include new videos from the 1960s to the 1990s. You can check out the videos up close from her site.
