THE CONNECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS 

The social practices and visual cultures of traveling carnivals and patent-medicine salesmen are appropriated as conduits for considering the contemporary political moment. The look and feel of veracity is siphoned out of archival films and paired with carnival barker style appeals in a series of audio-visually pronounced hypotheses on post-truth.
