I Was One of Them

This video is part of a group of work titled “Normalization of Deviance, To Touch the Face of God.” It is a mash up of the broadcasted Challenger launch and tragedy, and a broadcasted episode of the children’s show, Punky Brewster, called “Accidents Happen”, which was made the same year in response and designed to perform a kind of at-home-therapy. This video was exhibited in conjunction with a long exposure photo diptych of the two broadcasts, this text printed and stapled on seven standard pages, and a flag featuring a microscopic image of a slice of a human brain with a degenerative brain disease. The audio in this video played on separate speakers on the other side of the space, removed from the video.
