The Increase

Lisa Stewart
Video DV, 13:05 mins
2013

The Increase explores anxieties and apathies toward current environmental concerns through an abstract fantasy narrative that borrows language from advertising, propaganda, documentary and educational video styles, re-ordering them with a new logic. The work places an original narrated story over reedited found VHS footage, with added text and original soundtrack. These multiple layers float the work between epochs into a fictional space where the past is used to reflect upon the present and speculate about the future.
