See the exhibition at University of Brighton North Gallery

Christian Marclay captures the idiosyncratic qualities of analogue sound like hisses, glitches, skips and scratches. In Looking for Love, the needle of a record player is raised and dropped again and again, searching for the moment in assorted songs when the word “love” is heard. Marclay filmed his performance with a tiny camera used in surgical operations and captures, in sharp detail, his attempts to “look for love” on the record.
