Under the guise of "Homeland Security,"
we find ourselves todayprimarily a nation of insecure
workers scared to death of our future, of our ability to consume
corporate food at any cost, of our right to buy gas guzzling
vehicles that double as tanks. Since September 11, all levels
of government have been pointing fingers like never before while
our airports become Keystone cop scenarios and our border security
remains a farce. Our children have access to better technology
than our federal intelligence agents.
Corporate Control of Media
We will confront corporate control of mass
media, so that a new century is spared new horrors
of CNN - the issue Americans should care most about. We will
appropriate with magisterial fearlessness, transforming CNN,
MSNBC, and Fox News into magical images, and bring about the
systematic reordering of the senses through the deconstruction
of live, broadcast media.
The Future of Democracy
In these post-apocalyptic times, which now
supercede the post-modern in the post-9/11 21st
century, we are redefining the role of the artist as a mediator
and political player whose reflections, ideas, sensibilities,
and abilities take significant action on the world stage. We
see this as a way of moving toward a totally wired, out of control
system of knowledge-potential slamming into your wanting-it
body until it gives in.
