Home, Itself, Strange is Liz Sales’ series of 69 synthetic images converted from a thirty-second video portrait. Sales (class of 2001) combines the data in each still frame with audio data from the Magnetic Field’s three-volume album, 69 Love Songs. Sales reinterprets image, audio, and text data; allowing for the integration of essential information from each song into each image. Each image is hand labeled to indicated its corresponding song.
