Camcorder Day

Starting with the premise of the little known ‘National Camcorder Day' in which videographers are encouraged to annually celebrate the release of the first ever consumer camcorder by spending the day going out and filming whatever they encounter. Camcorder Day takes place on the 20th of January each year, and in 2018, whilst the artist was in residence at ISCP (International Studio & Curatorial Programme), New York, they spent the day filming whatever they encountered.

The work features the complete, unedited contents of the artist’s camcorder's memory card of all footage filmed on that day.
