GET IN THERE AND BRING WNEM DOWN



This video was part of a project called Real, Life Feeds, which appropriated leftist rhetoric of "culture jamming" and "undermining the spectacle" under the guise of a satirical fictitious guerilla media broadcasting group offering an alternative media system that ran counter to mainstream sensationalism. It was screened at the SAIC Undergraduate Film and Video Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center in 2009, and a version of it including the video below was screened in my installation at the SAIC Fall 2009 BFA Thesis Exhibition.





I'm a video/new media artist, educator, writer, and curator living in Chicago, IL. My work undermines the interfaces of consumer electronics and digital structures to liberate their latent audio and video materialities in videos, performances, and installations.

I teach in the Film, Video, New Media, and Animation department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and work as the Assistant curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection.
