456123 (Super Double BFF Edition), 2009
1 hr. 55 min. 53 sec.
For 456123 Jones layered the video and sound from all 6 Star Wars feature films. The duration of 5 of the films was altered so that each became equal in length to Episode 4. The contrast in the video image was enhanced to allow only the strongest visual information to emerge. The result is a stunning visual and aural cacophony, but one that sometimes oozes, sometimes bursts forth with familiar Lucasfilm inflections. When purchasing 456123 buyers will receive 3 copies of the video and are required to give away 2. Signed and numbered.
