Soo Choi,2010,Pain it black [ fabrics and wood, cigar box, acrylic on wood ]
The brief for this project was titled ‘future sound’ and each person has a randome song and need to work responding the sounds.
My song was the Rolling stones’ ‘ Paint it black’. First i focused on the beat, which feels like you are being chased, but it sings about the sorrow of girlfriend’s death. I imagined he is emotionally drained from sadness and therefore cannot play music anymore. That initial idea lead me to imagine the instruments what we cannot play like sort of Dada’s sculptures. I choose the accordion because it is used in Jewish music a lot, and the song sounds like Jewish funeral song.
