People Like Us (Vicki Bennett)

People Like Us (Vicki Bennett) at UBUWEB Film & Video. "...People Like Us (Vicki Bennett) creates audio-visual collage using sampling and found footage from the renowned Prelinger Archives. These appropriated elements compose the arena where recontextualized sounds and images begin to take on new lives, giving way to multiple worlds of mirrored images. The result is a labyrinthine universe of alchemical mystery where equal measures of lighthearted humour and sinister satire create a balanced art. By using A/V elements from throughout the 20th C., Bennett paradoxically breathes new interpretations into our current relationship with technology. Her work is a delightful parody of both past and present European and American culture."
