Don't Let Me Down

Don't Let Me Down (2002)
digital video with sound (7 minutes)

Don't Let Me Down examines contemporary American culture's tenuous relationship with popular technology [such as cell phones, ATMs, and personal computers]. Through absurd juxtapositions and surreal collages, the piece problematizes conventions and assumptions our culture holds regarding technology. Borrowing equally from a variety of ideological and aesthetic rhetorics, Don't Let Me Down leaves the viewer facing the ridiculous nature of our daily, increasingly dependent relationship with technology.
