About

Sabotage is a live interactive audio-visual collage that will blend fragments of sound and footage taken from International 24 hour news channels.

By splicing together snippets of scrolling texts from channels and audio. The work created during the residence is to be edited daily that will be presented on multiple screens over the week.

A live performance will take place on the 28th February as part of the Last Friday event at Lightbox, LCB Depot.

This is to emphasise how the news channels have moved towards sensationalism, entertainment and opinion, and away from traditional values of verification, relevance, depth and quality of interpretation.

The fear of these values will be replaced by a ‘journalism of assertion’ which de-emphasizes whether a claim is valid and encourages putting a claim into the arena of public discussion as quickly as possible.

“Art at its most significant is a Distant Early Warning System that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen to it.”(Marshall McLuhan)
