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.
