Performance Anxiety

YouTube mourning. Wildlife revenge.

Steve Irwin as the prime-beef export model of sun-drenched Australiana. Steve Irwin’s family as the intersection of mourning, morning television and marketing. Steve Irwin trading on his own death before the fact. Steve Irwin’s televisual and broadcast aura, sifted and re-presented in nine minutes.

Completed during studio residency at Het Wilde Weten Rotterdam.
Sound design by Carl Anderson.
