Learn more about Georg Burwick at http://www.georgburwick.com. Talking head is derived from the early morning footage recorded on September 11, 2001. In those early moments newscasters were scrambling to inform us of the events as they were unfolding: the second, third and fourth aircraft crashes, the collapse of the towers and the fires at the Pentagon and WTC. Dan Rather was one of the newscasters attempting to frame the events as they where occurring. The broadcast that morning consisted of 30 minutes of footage and approximately two-minute segments featuring Dan. The news was given to us as a continuous stream without any moments of silence or pauses allowing for reflection. This had the effect of desensitizing us, to an extent, to the events that were being reported to us of the terror that had struck our home. Talking head gives us that moment of silence and reflection that was needed at some point during that morning. Compiled from the one of the breaks in footage of that morning's broadcast, it focuses on the pauses in Dan Rather's commentary. These pauses in speech are fused together to form a continuous two-minute silence and reflection of those events.
