Media Lies: The View from Here
Kelly Parks Snider, Jane Bartell,

Multi-textured sounds, jittery voices, variously-pitched noises, and distorted media images offer the viewer a forced multi-sensory experience, a new look at the same media they see every day, taken out of daily context.
This assault of sounds and images is meant to make viewers uncomfortable.
In today's world, the absurd has become our living reality. Mainstream media uses "cutting–edge" techniques to cash-in on successful advertising campaigns that promote overly sexualized images of children and young girls, and demeaning stereotypes of young women. Many advertisements misrepresent what truly is beautiful.
Because of the sheer volume of cultural space in our lives occupied by advertising, it is crucial to examine it, deconstruct it, and understand it. More art at www.kellyparkssnider.com.
