The “Anti-Tourism” domain includes a series of collaborative projects that contemplate the encounter between visitor, resident and place. Unlike the consumer mentality that drives commercial tourism, these encounters are predicated upon listening, learning, and non-judgmental following.
The “MKUltra-Foods” domain is a stand-alone web project that imagines the CIA mind-control program went “legit” after it was exposed in the 1970s, primarily trading in a mind-control foodstuff called “Liquid Bacon.” The new and improved MKUltra-Foods includes an “Identity Reassignment Program” that welcomes visitors to participate.
