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.
