Black Propaganda at Melancholy Ranch (2005)

The video reports and dramatises a remote event in a desert setting where a light aircraft breeches the uninhabited landscape and bombards the terrain with leaflets simultaneously reporting and threatening a language bomb.

Black Propagana at Melancholy Ranch was presented as a short video, broadcast daily to the Morongo Basin desert community for one month on Channel 6, Adelphi cable television.

The project was completed with the support and cooperation of Andrea Zittel, the Center for Land Use Interpretation, and Jeremy Deller.
