7-minute looped video projected onto 4x6' painted board. 

Sound bites were collected from personal video diaries on Youtube, all of which have less than 20 views. These sound bites were transcribed with charcoal onto a large board and then each phrase was gradually painted over. Each sound bite stops playing when it is painted over, until the audio thins out into just a few voices.

The video of the act of erasing is projected directly onto the erasing surface (the board), so the figure is in 1:1 scale in relation to the viewer.
