Funky Town

TJ Mathieu's avatar TJ Mathieu

I experiment with many medias as a way to explore how our reality has become normalized and definitions concrete. In a world where we are ready to accept new terms of service before reading them and access to information is limited actions are predetermined. They happen before we can predict the disaster of our own lives and we avoid disaster by pressing forward, by checking the box, and clicking accept. How do we arrive when we we’re already there? I mean you’re here now, but I knew you were coming. This interactive video installation will explore the theme of arrival. What does it mean to exist in a space / society, which has predetermined our navigation through social & political space? Is it impossible for us to exist outside of or be more aware of our contemporary situation? I believe collectively we have to power to change what we want to change, but it wont happen until we can navigate our arrival into that new situation.
