  2. This video uses animated relief prints alongside documentary footage from my Siberian fieldwork. I am exploring the relationship between the infrastructures of mechanized travel and the traditional role of reindeer mobility for Evenki peoples in Central Siberia. The main print is based on the cover of a book by the Evenki historian V.N. Uvachan, titled "The road of the Northern Peoples to Socialism." This video clip is part of a larger exploration of technology and agency in remote northern communities.

    Sorry, the quality of this version is bad. I'll upload a better one soon.

    Music/field recordings are by the inimitable Sun City Girls.

  3. Experiment in degenerative video. I'm playing here with the term 'generative art' and degenerate art (which was a label infamously applied by the National Socialist party art curators). This is an ironic appropriation of that term. This video features the Soviet Red Army choir.

  4. Another experiment in degenerative art. This one using a manipulated news broadcast from the CBC. Thanks to dirty three for the audio.
