Senator Portrait Project [ the site ]

The Senator Portrait Project has a website!

As I described in the lengthy post over here, I made images for Wisconsin Senator Howard “Ron” Johnson (R-Oshkosh) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Janesville). I’m one of a larger group of artists attempting to hold Congressmen responsible for their inability to even talk about guns in America.

these stills are taken from a 4 minute sketch i worked up the last few days. this is for the next chapter of the film in progress, i.thou.

the chapter or excerpt is titled “19”. the moshing technique assists the viewer take a meditative journey on identity, memory, witnessing, transpersonal consciousness, the tellable story, and the problem of unbelievable experience.

the still image of the girl named “19” is taken from the television show CSI. the source video shots used (pre-processing and ‘mosh’) look like the two stills that follow:
