video, 2006, Part of the Impostor series + Living Documents installation
My Commonly Used Phrases uses the data from the Identity Profile as source material. This time van de Geer finds new and interesting ways to annunciate common phrases of a twenty-something North American male, sometimes unhinging them from their context and leaving them adrift as senseless idioms.
