Epiphany (2006) single-channel video, stereo
Sampled and synthesized sound, text, digital objects, animation
The medium is the message.
-- Marshall McLuhan
In Epiphany, I take medium to be the entire text of American advertising and entertainment in the 1950's and 1960's, expressed most profoundly in the content of television commercials. Two prom night sweethearts are at play in a mass media pinball game, their identities, assumptions, and aspirations all the product of American TV culture.
