Lip Syncing Good Night Moon 100x is a disconcerting lullaby. Shot with an old malfunctioning black & white security camera, Dooling’s orb-like face, repeats the popular childhood story, until the words of the story start to disassociate. The telling begins to take on a macabre cast alluding to a journey of a different sort with the concluding stanza: “Good night stars; Good night air; Good night noises everywhere”.
