Julie Becker remixes cultural icons, images, and film footage as a means of provoking new narratives from their intersection. Her work Suburban Legend (1999) synchs together The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, to test the myth that the album serves an alternative soundtrack to the film. Becker also has an ongoing interest in the evocative properties of interior spaces, which manifests in her constructions in both miniature and life-size scales. An early and critically acclaimed installation, Researchers, Residents, A Place to Rest (1996), was furnished with videos, audio tracks, and printed matter to evoke the imaginary co-habitation of the characters Eloise from the children’s books, and Danny Torrence from Stephen King’s The Shining. More recent works have delved more deeply into the ambiguities of public and private space, often to ominous effect.

Always fascinated in the evocative properties of interior spaces, for “The Same Room” series Becker constructed and photographed miniature scenes “that look like the homes of people who got busted on Cops,” as described by Jerry Saltz. “The result is seedy and fantastical: part docudrama, part psychodrama.”
