With a new Grammy nomination in hand, Harry Shearer is set for a year of major milestones: the 25th anniversary of his radio program Le Show, as well as the 25th anniversary of his perforamnce in This Is Spinal Tap.  Today on Where We Live, Shearer talks with us about his video installation,The Silent Echo Chamber, on view through February 8th, at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield.

The images in the video installation were taken from live satellite feeds, in the moments before these well known talking heads started talking. It catches them in the uncomfortable act of silence. Below, Larry King.
