alien occupation

artist statement/

"Alien Occupation" explores the alter-ego as a response to hegemonic forces, when agency works at cross-purposes to cultural ideology, the inescapable social rules impede one's effort to exercise it. A subjugation accepted, inherited or otherwise. Subconscious scripting, performances with a finite range of improvisations, walking the same path, continuously reinforcing the past. "alien occupation" is an experimental video connoting a dissociative experience.
