This installation and multimedia interventionist project was developed for the mentorship course with artist and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar in Spring 2012. Passive Komplacency, Active Konsumption calls attention to a contemporary crisis of content and our own complacency within that. Using reality tv stars as muse, this project attempts to overload the viewer with content – activating and charging the field of passive consumption, forcing into recognition and out of complacency, regarding the content of our television and media.
There are four main strategies:
Visual overload of images of hyper-reality.
Audio overload of sounds of hyper-reality.
Extended and warped visuals of hyper-reality.
