An ongoing series of conceptual art videos that reveal unconventional landscapes in media and entertainment culture.

The People of California v. The Simpsons (Excerpt) / (2018) / HD Video / 22:00

After being convicted for two counts of murder, O.J. Simpson famously fled the police on June 17th, 1994. The exciting and performative car chase memorized viewers as it was broadcasted live on CNN. The People of California v. The Simpsons combines the CNN audio of O.J. Simpson’s chase with looped frames from the intro of a 1994 episode of The Simpsons that aired the same day. This juxtaposition locates the live car chase into an empty living room where the television broadcast is being ignored. Additionally, the duration of the entire piece spans the 22 minute length of a standard episode of The Simpsons.

Civilized Landscapes (2017) / HD Video / 01:04

Civilized Landscapes begins with ambient sounds and looped frames from Paramount Picture’s 1960s painted landscape intro. This recontextualization thereby isolates the landscape away from its original profit oriented and promotional intent. The sequence is then compressed with over 50 years of different Paramount intros, immediately obliterating its newfound serene landscape while creating an overstimulating and overly commercialized scene.

1878 DERBY (2016) / Digital Video / 02:14

1878 DERBY is an attempt to reinvent or provide context for the first motion picture ever- Eadweard Muybridge's, "Horse In Motion." The pacing of Muybridge's horse in this piece is dictated by the speed of the fastest horse in the racing footage underneath.
