Speculative Science Fiction Poetry and Collage with Craig Fahner

In his video works, Jeremy Shaw nods to a post-human future by digging into the past. Through the superimposition of text upon found footage, Shaw generates a work of speculative science fiction by collaging elements from past and present media. Harkening back to the cut-up poetry technique of the Dadaist movement, participants in this workshop created collaged vignettes that meld the imagery of the past with contemporary text, creating snapshots of potential futures. This workshop began with a presentation on remix and collage techniques, with a focus on the practices of the Dadaist art movement. Participants were provided with a number of sources from which to construct and caption collages.
