Shelly Silver, A Strange New Beauty (2017)

A disturbing intrusion into the luxurious homes of Silicon Valley. Silver, in using an aggressive soundtrack and a full frame often fractured into small rectangles covered by text, reveals a deafening violence behind the glittering beauty and deceptively calm of this suburban landscape. There is no human presence, but the homes seem to contain a memory of disturbing events, bearing traces of a savagery just offscreen.
