The Radical and Other Personages (2019)
Collaged monochrome laser prints on Mohawk Superfine Text, adhesive tape, and a three-channel video with sound (duration 7 mins. 15 secs.)


This project mines an archive of historical American newspapers (1800s to the early 1900s) from the Library of Congress to explore the American public’s evolving self-constitution. The text was digitally erased, leaving behind the subjective and emotive content in the newswriting. The remaindered text became a script for three-channel video-recorded performance.
