The Wargasm 2







The Wargasm 2

Synopsis: A videopoem about the strange, macabre form of joy that many people experience at the beginning of a new war.


Bio and statement: 

Award-winning artist, writer, musician, filmmaker. Articles in many journals including the Brooklyn Rail and Canadian Notes and Queries. Have presented to academic conferences in Oxford, Bath, Liverpool, Berlin, Seoul, Osaka, and elsewhere. Selected by festivals in Korea, Ireland, the U.K., the US, China (Hong Kong), Kazakhstan, Australia, Greece, Pakistan, Serbia, Portugal, Russia, and India.

I’m particularly interested in the following themes: nature and the anthropocene, addiction and family dynamics (my late brother’s story), and technology and contemporary war. I usually make videopoems that I term authorial movies; these are movies in which one person creates — authors — all elements of the movie.
