InRelief (2012)

InRelief reuses clips used within the other works in this trilogy, and also employs the same techniques of production (intentionally corrupting the process of 3D anaglyph software). This work in particular highlights the use of highly emotive music selected by the network to overlay the grim news footage. This trilogy aims to pressurize the viewer's response to the form of presentation by elucidating the connection between framing and perception.

This work is part of a trilogy or short pieces that meditate on the ways that news media use standardized aesthetic cues and props to prepare the viewer by asserting authority, and thereby claiming validity. These videos were made at the moment that citizen news broadcasts were starting to be made via youtube and other non-news media sharing sites. The other two works in the series are mubaafi and remediation in process.
