Coup (2016)

TRT: 31 secs (loop)

Looping single channel video on VHS (physical installation), GIFs (digital distribution).

Coup aims to disrupt the visual narrative put forward by #IslandLife by subtly infiltrating the tag and forcing viewers to confront the truth of what happens on these islands everyday. Consisting of both a series of “corrupted” imagery and a deeper meditation on the Internet as sanctuary and a repository of what I call “untrue but valid” memory, Coup is a multimedia project that aims to be as accessible as it is critical.
