Scrambled

Scrambled

Sometime in the late 90s I recorded a copy-protected, scrambled, HBO broadcast. This was a common analog pay wall. I felt it also looked like how we rearrange ourselves for public performance—a kind of scrambled version of ourselves. In 2020 I turned this into a “video painting.” Now for this exhibit, I’ve created an installation in Animal Crossing. So stop by, pick up some bells, and show off another version of yourself.
