Marat Minus One

Marat Minus One 150 150 Forest City Film Festival

Description: “Marat Minus One” is part of a video series that uses material such as stock footage, found text, found sound and popular moving image conventions to meditate on the relation between suicide and capitalism.
The title “Marat Minus One” refers to the painting “The Death of Marat” by Jacques – Louis David and to an early form of karaoke called Music Minus One.

SWO Connection: I am presently based out of Windsor, Ontario, where I have lived for the majority of my life aside from a 9 – year stint in Chicago, Illinois. I received my BFA at the University of Windsor and became involved with various arts and activist communities in the region as an artist, educator and coordinator. Like many others from the area, being in close proximity to Detroit has an influence on me, amongst other things. Detroit techno culture, the “Big Three” (my dad was an assembly line worker at Chrysler), deindustrialization, austerity, and class struggle continuously shapes who I am and the place that I currently call home.

Running Time: 1 minute
