How to Build a Lie

Free sample

How to Build a Lie experiments with “artistic research practice” that tries to escape disciplinary boundaries and look to as many aspects of a single technology, media, or topic as it can. This extra-disciplinary practice, as Brian Holmes and others have intimated, intersects with media and technology to direct artistic work toward institutional critique without aesthetic distance. How to Build a Lie is gonzo media studies that engages directly, physically, and operationally with the technological structures that frame our lives. What would it be to do research, but include the material engagements and framings of media, as a kind of hands-on technical inquiry?

The text of this book was presented as a lecture on May 16, 2016, as part of Jamie Allen’s exhibit “How to Build a Lie: Apocryphal Technologies & Works” at the Dateline gallery in Denver, and is supported by the Media Archaeology Lab at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
