Assembled from footage collected over a period of fifty years, Alexandre Klinke's Playback Head is a cryptic and compelling audiovisual journey that considers the transience of time, the bonds of family, and the experience of (im)migration. Comprised of a multichannel audio/video installation and a short film, this work combines images shot on analogue and digital media in Brazil, Canada, and countries in Europe and South America with a collage of evocative soundscapes and experimental music. It is a synesthetic depiction of past events – recollections of childhood, traveling, and different homes.

The exhibition of a graduating project represents the culmination of a candidate’s studies, and is presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts.
