Description

In Richards's work, images and sounds are merged into highly affective videos that combine footage from a wide range of sources to form elegant compositions. His recent projects separate these elements out again, allowing space for multichannel audio installations that combine sound in a way that is physical and spatial. The video works convene materials according to the silent rhythms and movements of the footage they contain footage from newscasts, medical documentaries, and French erotica as well as the institutions' own archives of video documentation-composing a lyrical meditation on the body as a site for the flow of material and sensation.
