One Hundred Years of Aggression

4 min excerpt

“This tape has been constructed as a conversation between two radically different environments. One half of this conversation is among some men on a street discussing, from an economic perspective, the advantages of purchasing wine over beer. The other is a recording of a man reading from a political theory text. This tape was produced to attempt to discover what, if anything, these elements have to do with each other. I was curious to see what would happen if I placed all of these things together in a linear framework, juxtaposing disparate ideas, creating a collage of political icons and symbols.” K.T.
