Living in the Future Present

I live and work in the Future Present. The Bunker is my refuge. It is here I maintain a semblance of sanity in a world gone awry. I open my Broadcast Journal and write for the world. Or for my myself. No matter. Everything is open, public, exposed. I live and breathe in front of the camera. My every move is tracked and recorded. But no matter, none of this will stop me from telling my story, a story that must be told amidst the incessant noise that fills my brain each and every day.







We Live Inside the Manifestations of Human Minds

In the first performance of the Ghost Monologues in the Underground Studio Bunker, I chose Jerry Mander’s Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television as the text. While the book was written 40 years ago in 1978, and focuses on the media effects of television, it couldn’t be more relevant today. Television as a platform for the dissemination of propaganda and mind-numbing programmatic material has simply been absorbed into the monolithic, universal medium of the Internet. Now the amplification of media disinformation is greater, faster, and ubiquitously distributed by nearly everyone on the planet.







TRUMP owns our Minds

TRUMP is fully in control of our heads. He is masterminding our reality. He is inside every one of us, like a virus that has penetrated deep into our consciousness, our souls. How has he done this? Simple. He owns the Media, and in turn, he owns our minds. TRUMP is the master of the Media Universe. He manipulates the chorus of pundits like so many puppets. No matter whether they love him or hate him. This makes NO difference to TRUMP. It is all about capturing and maintaining our undivided attention. Because every second they are talking about TRUMP, is another second he is burrowing his way into the recesses of our mental space.







The Intimacy of Maximalist Writing

And so… amidst the Chaos, I write within its turbulence, like a calm with the STORM… finding solace in this primordial writing space, around which are the resonances + ground up fragmentation + particles of the MEDIA FLOW. That Flow never ceases, ALWAYS ON, IN THE EVER-PRESENT-PRESENT OF RIGHT NOW. BUT INSIDE OF THE TORRENT I keep on writing in the sweeping granulation of it all.







The FLOW

The media FLOW that emanates from the Bunker via the Third Space Network is a study in information: excess, noise, beauty, comprehensibility, seduction, control, and systems management. The FLOW can be too much information or too little, and at times opaque, fragmented, complex, jarring, mesmerizing, translucent. We ask: how does the FLOW impact the nervous system, state of mind, intellect, and the sense of who we are in a world of constantly pulsating information?







Raw Hope of Humanity Rising

When two women survivors of sexual abuse confront a Senator in an elevator to dissuade him from confirming a Supreme Court nomination hanging on the precipice: that is the raw hope of humanity rising. This bold assertion of civic duty and act of conscious at the House of Congress to challenge unfair authority is the kind of powerful defense of democracy that gives raw hope to what remains of a rapidly deteriorating political system.
