The PSA Project (2005/06, 45 m. 16mm, super8 & video, co-directed with Elle Flanders) is an ongoing series of videos that speak out against the American invasion of Iraq and the act of war. Appropriating the fast-motion, color-saturated cinematography of the televised world, the videos sew together sounds and images both new and familiar to create a staggering, fresh, charting of war AND violence. By taking up its abbreviated, advert-like authority, the PSA Project interrupts a lulled media landscape to offer a startling visual reminder and protest of the American war in Iraq.
