In my recent work I have been investigating mechanisms of power in modern culture. I explore the relationships and associations between violence, war and political struggle, and various entertainment and spectacle factories.
My work combines textual and performative elements drawn from both world: the violent and the entertaining. This meeting is made possible by using machines and appliances that are found in the communication and spectacle world. I alter the original function of these objects and use them to create a conceptual framework that is the basis for a new narrative. By creating video installations, photography and performance I introduce the dark link between political power and popular culture; the hidden, unconscious connection that inhibits these worlds, and their dramatic effect on us.
