restricted access Bazoocam 4'33"
Abstract

Bazoocam (and other forms of Chat Roulette) are unlikely venues for activism—and even unlikelier forums for collective performances of John Cage's 4'33", in silent musical protest against Israel's raid on Gaza in November 2011. John Greyson is a Toronto film/ video artist whose shorts, features, and installations include Fig Trees, Proteus, The Law of Enclosures, Lilies, Un@copy;ut, Zero Patience, The Making of Monsters, and Urinal. An Associate Professor in Film Production at York University, he was awarded the Toronto Arts Award for Film/Video in 2000 and the Bell Canada Video Art Award in 2007.
