Appropriating three different representations of Edward R. Murrow, this installation addresses different aspects of both free speech and the filter of media that is used to spread information. On a high shelf, the real Murrow is shown on a small black and white television with the sound turned off. Beneath that iteration, a clip from a popular Hollywood movie plays on two color televisions on top of a constructed environment. The sound is inaudible until the very end of the actor's speech when you can hear Murrow's signature tagline: "Good night, and good luck." On the floor, another color television plays a third representation of Murrow. This time, it is an Internet video of a young boy giving an animated speech and sucking on a fake cigarette. He, too, speaks in silence until he delivers the famous tagline: "Good night, and good luck."
