NonLinearWEST


NonLinearWEST
'NonLinearWEST" is a multi channel non-linear video installation which speaks to contemporary and mythological American Western struggles through public domain appropriated cinema. The mythology of the American West was manifested by Hollywood's most talented story makers. American Western myth making served as a distortion to the atrocity taking place against Native Americans, Mexicans and Hispanic residents of the Western frontiers during 19 century US expansion. Today as the new Western settlers reside behind gated communities in the suburban abyss, do struggles of the past persist?
