Sonata (Pg. 1 & 2)
Laser Cut Calf Hide Vellum, Music Stands

Musical score generated from Nick Berg beheading video laser cut into calf hide vellum.

Sonata (Nick Berg Beheading) is derived from the video footage of the beheading of Nick Berg performed by members of Al-Qaeda. Intended to terrorize through the power of imagery, the videos are reinterpreted as sheet music laser engraved on calf hide vellum; a translation or transposition of video image into notation and ultimately sound.
