State of the DysUnion, 2018

In the Trumpian age of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” diverse truths prompt me to ask: How can individuals exert agency over their media consumption and personal psychic space? This work explores the dissonance of the media landscape today: Daily headlines and photographs are indexed and projected onto a suspended cylindrical screen which streams a wide spectrum of social and political perspectives. Experimenting with sculptural video projection and intervention of the gallery architecture, “State of the DysUnion” calls audiences to examine their contemporary visual language, it’s documentation, distribution, and role in developing culture and history.
