The presidential election coverage on the cable news media will be the subject matter for the evening's remix at the Black Cat in Washington, DC. The Election Night Remix will take place on the most important day of our nation's political process, the election of the US President. The Media Deconstruction Kit real-time system will be installed as a live feed to be incorporated into performances by Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid, along with DC video artist Robin Bell's Noskilz / Video Syndicate

As a commentary on the powerful and hypnotic narcosis of television and its propaganda, the Media Deconstruction Kit (MDK) has been designed as a real-time system that alters broadcast media live and in real-time, transforming news stories, advertising, political pundits, live up-dates, scrolls, and network logos into an immersive, sensorial, multimedia experience.

According to Robin Bell, "This is not your typical Washington event. There won't be any political speeches or any elected officials. This isn't a get out the vote event. It isn't for one political candidate. We expect people to dance, to get involved, to communicate. We have been moving and motivating over the last few months. We are making change and change doesn't happen in front of your living room TV."

The Media Deconstruction Kit is a project of the US Department of Art & Technology and the Experimental Party, engineered by Randall Packer and Wesley Smith.
