The lecture I gave on my recent project at The Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland on June 12 is now edited and online! What do WWI-era battleships decorated with crazy patterns, the Tasaday hoax (faux-stone age Filipino tribe), mass-manufactured Urban Outfitters textiles, digital surveillance technologies, Melanesian cargo cults, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan have in common? Well, here you go… “Patterned Migrations: on frictional objects, crossed signals, and bastard lineages.” NOTE: the initial image is only during the introduction of the talk and shifts to the actual images I’ll be talking about!

Part of the exhibition “Fashioning Cascadia,” this talk links together the artist’s previous projects with a new commission by the Museum of Contemporary Craft involving dazzle camouflage, surveillance, ethnic fictions, empire, and capitalism.
