Charlie's Greenroom with artist Sara Stern

Charlie's Greenroom with artist Sara Stern.
Single-channel video and sound installation on large monitor and speakers, dining table, set of chairs.
Dimensions variable. 2012.

A video installation for which Stern transcribed, re-wrote, and re-edited one full Charlie Rose interview to project herself into the place of the original artist in the interview. The screen is always a pixelated black when she speaks (appropriated from the darkness of the set just behind the interviewee's head). Stern was interested in using the original interview as a script for a conversation in which she not only needed to formulate the response to a phrase (as in natural dialogue), but also the remark that generated the response.
