Tidbit: Sampled Behavior Patterns from Latenight Monologues, video.

This is a single-channel video and audio piece. Using a week’s worth of television footage from the monologue portions of David Letterman’s and Jay Leno’s television programs, the two talkshow hosts are paired on a single split screen delivering their commentary. With their actual speech edited out, sporadic laugh tracks and similar body gestures create a subtle visual and audio pattern as a point of comparison.
