Hi. Wow. Video

Hi. Wow., 50-person live performance (with the Lesbian and Gay Big Apple Corps Marching Band), 15 minutes


For the opening of the 2017 Columbia MFA thesis exhibition, Stern invited the Lesbian and Gay Big Apple Corps Marching Band to play Fancy (Iggy Azalea), Big Spender (Sweet Charity), Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen), and Pompeii (Bastille) while puppeteer performers created a face with flags in the windows, turning Columbia’s new arts building on West 125th Street into a giant puppet.
