SHIFT/ALT/DELETE (2016)

Philip K. Dicks’ novel, The Man In The High Castle, proposed the question: What would have happened if Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were the victors of WWII?
Drawing from this concept of speculative narratives, SHIFT/ALT/DELETE showcases three respective themes under the shared experience of applying for an Identity Document.
Theme 1: Country as Corporation, toys with the idea of hierarchy and commercialization of The American Dream.
Theme2: Africans as Colonizers, imagines a reality where minerally-rich nation states united to rapidly expand, but not without the exploitation and/or allegiances of indigenous peoples of other lands.
Theme 3: These Sovereign States, redraws North Americas’ territorial lines to create new nations, federations, republics and unions.

SHIFT/ALT/DELETE was performed at AHA Festival of Progressive Arts, September 2016, as well as for Current Studio‘s “Crit Night”, October 2016 (moderated by heather ahtone, and Louise Siddons).
