 Epiphany  (2006)                                         single-channel video, stereo

Sampled and synthesized sound, text, digital objects, animation

The medium is the message.
          -- Marshall McLuhan

In Epiphany, I take medium to be the entire text of American advertising and entertainment in the 1950's and 1960's, expressed most profoundly in the content of television commercials. Two prom night sweethearts are at play in a mass media pinball game, their identities, assumptions, and aspirations all the product of American TV culture.
