Window of Normalization is an exploration of the current televised mass media system in the United States. Between July 31 and August 8, 2013, I watched 34 hours of live television, the same amount of time the average American watches per week according to Nielsen statistics. During this time, I recorded the audio and captured over 6,500 still images. In an attempt to expose which values, beliefs, and codes of behavior are being normalized via television, I recomposed the sounds into a six-movement musical composition and placed images into twelve grids.
