WAV, 2018, multi-channel video installation.




WAV evokes the post-factual echo chamber 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.
