Catching the tremors of transmitted information; I am an antenna -
Misunderstanding is inevitable and those who answer the call are immediately subject to the demands of the electric voice.
The passage of communication always involves power play (I want to probe the dynamics of this noisy standoff).
The politics of distribution is never a neutral process -
It’s mediated broadcast disembodies voices: tune into the static chorus.
Regurgitated narratives loop, imitated old stories short circuit in a disguise of the new as sampled mainstream moments are pushed underground until their next resurfacing.
