The piece that I enjoyed the most at the exhibit was Christian Marclay’s Recycled Records. The color of the piece is what originally jumped out at me, and made me stop at look a little longer. I am always captivated by color, especially such vivid colors as the ones I was seeing. One of my classmates mentioned that this piece was very pop arty. I also believe that, and consider it one of the reasons I was so drawn to it. It took a simple black record, and made it visually appealing.
I became even more engrossed in the piece, when i discovered the records could actually be played. The idea of having a mix or mashed song, and not even changing out the record was innovative, especially in 1980 when the piece was created. I wish i could have been able to hear one of the records being played. Being able to slightly see where the records were spliced together, allowed me to image how the tone and beat of the record could have changed at that moment. I really love how this piece is workable art.
