WAV, 2018, multi-channel video installation.




WAV evokes the post-factual echo chambers of right-wing American news media. The spectacle
orchestrates a divisive pageantry of national disasters and military operations through rhythmically-
timed numeric sequences, disruptive swells of white noise, and a theatrics of re-edited news media
footage. The affective forces of contemporary Americana have been alternately contoured and
distanced; an interplay of fear and anaesthetization has been predicated on the anticipation of a near-
future catastrophe and the normalized tropes of vérité and Hollywood.
