WORKS:



Real Space Agency (NSAliens part 2)

Video, HD, stereo, 4:02 min., 2016

This video collage shows Michael S. Rogers, Director of the NSA, giving a lecture on cyber security. It is combined with found footage from YouTube, pictures of the Apollo 11 mission and the song "ATLiens" by Outkast. The work raises questions about the theft of intellectual property, the credibility of digital media and the possibilities to manipulate it and be manipulated by it.


We Hope You Will Enjoy Our Nation (NSAliens part 1)

Video, HD, stereo, 1:17 min., 2015

The starting point for this work is a video from the “Public Information” section on the National Security Agency's official website. The footage shows Michael S. Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency and Commander of U.S. Cyber Command. The text stems from this video as well, but is reduced to words that are used in combination with the pronouns “we”, “our”, “us”, “you”, “your”, “they”, “their” and “them”. By using pronouns, no one is named or addressed directly and the listener is obliged to fill in the blanks in order to make sense of the information. Who are the “allies” and who the “adversaries”?
