Tommy Becker's videos combine raw poetics with performance, music and costume design to create sentimental vignettes for his never-ending saga titled, "TAPE NUMBER ONE." Becker's carefully orchestrated delivery of words drives his visual collage works while juxtaposing unusual word-image combinations. In his video performances, spoken word highlights the humorous yet melancholy state of his characters as they struggle to overcome adversity. Becker's work embodies a sensitivity to the transient, fluctuating states of our being while keeping an eye on the beauty of vulnerability in passages of time, changes in relations and shifting of perspectives. Videos from the tape have been presented at film screenings, as single channel installations and performed as spoken word videos.
