24-hour fake news coverage, no news presenters, no breaking news stories, no information, no in-studio interviews. All content is reduced to meat and the visceral human body. There remains an implicit link between the media landscape and our bodies, as we merge more and more with the electronic world. Everything now exists in a heightened state of simulation, from fake TV news broadcasts to fake human bodies. Nothing is real, everything is constructed.
Ian Haig’s work has been exhibited in galleries and video/media festivals around the world.
