hello

January 1999 I began my quest to personally greet one million people. Holding a silver tally counter, I walked the streets of New York interacting with passersby. This piece has no physical recorded documentation, except for the clicker itself. Due to the media’s interest in ‘hello’, I have used an adapted version of their footage, as an extension of my project. January 2000, I appeared on Good Morning America. Unbeknown to the television host and crew I recorded the experience with a spy camera disguised in a lapel flower. hello Good Morning America weaves together behind the scenes video with broadcast footage to provide an inside look at how television and the mediation of human experience is produced.
