OR ELSE VOTE INSTALLATION PROPAGANDA KIOSK I have a piece I collaborated on with 15 other people that is in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts until Nov. 3 2004. It is in the lobby so you can see it for FREE. There are 5 machines manipulating the other peoples’ work, it is very Agit-prop with hundreds of political fliers free for the taking. Be sure to interact with everything, press the buttons, step on pad, have your heart-beat trigger the eraser, etc. Back in December 2004 I had breakfast with Chris Johanson, Matt Gonzalez just got his San Francisco mayoral bid STOLEN from him by the democratic party and Bill Clinton and Al NAFTA Gore and a bunch of millionaires. http://www.sfbg.com/38/12/news_ed_gonzalezwon.html We were bummed and we thought about all the work we did for matt’s election and were wondering what to do next and we thought, of course of the presidential election 11 months off. So we started scheming this piece.
We thought about how to get apathetic people involved, art viewers and the public at large. The loss of rights, of life, culture and dissent, your identity, if you don’t get involved….
The loss of your position in society by not being engaged, the erasure of certain groups, the spinning around of the electorate until they are dizzy and sick, the PARTYS OVER, propaganda, corporations taking over, electronic voting, lies and the lieing liars
