STATEMENT

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 circuit in a disguise of the new as sampled mainstream moments are pushed underground until their next resurfacing.
