"It assembles and reassembles fragmented cultural images, letting the meanings they generate wander unbounded through the grid of cultural possibility."
– Critical Art Ensemble

Corporate Control of Media

We will confront corporate control of mass media, so that a new century is spared new horrors of CNN - the issue Americans should care most about. We will appropriate with magisterial fearlessness, transforming CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News into magical images, and bring about the systematic reordering of the senses through the deconstruction of live, broadcast media.

Media Deconstruction Kit

If you're going to ask the media to take responsibility for your view of reality, you should be willing to take responsibility for your own. The Media Deconstruction Kit is an information service, news and media program of the US Department of Art & Technology, serving viewers around the world. The Media Deconstruction Kit (MDK) will forge a unique position within the media arts through an unparalleled combination of appropriation, theory, collage and real-time processing tools. By providing instantaneous access to broadcast media - and the ability to act upon it - the Media Deconstruction Kit transforms the one-way paradigm of broadcast media into many-to-many forms of interaction by leveling the playing field between medium and viewer.

"Can we change the world? No, but hell we can all try." – Rupert Murdoch


"Television can no longer be what it has been for half a century: a place of entertainment or the promotion of a culture; it must, first and foremost, give birth to the world time of exchanges."
– Paul Virilio
