Fallen Leaves in the Night II
Sound Art
Duration: 6min

Utilizing edited audio from the dash cam video of Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting Laquan McDonald which has been isolated, compressed and amplified in an effort to pull meaning and understanding from an event that defies both. The title, which references Roxy Music's More Than This, is a declaration that the lives of Laquan McDonald, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland and all the others snuffed out by the state are more than the fallen leaves in the night that their deaths have made them seem to be.
