Hacking Rhetoric

Artist’s Statement

1 Comment

When I hacked my summary, I thought about displaying the information in a new and different way. My summary was about the Chelsea (Bradley) Manning WikiLeaks scandal, and how her being inside the military and leaking the information was a different kind of hack. She hacked from the inside out by releasing classified information. When I started making my video, I decided to make it sort a campaign video against Chelsea, or in favor of her being incarcerated. I used music, images, and short strong words to persuade an audience against her. The video displayed the information in a very different way than the paper. The paper was a non-biased account of what happened and the background of the story. I chose to make a video that illustrates how people can interpret the story—because many believe Chelsea was wrong, and on the other hand many believe Chelsea is an American hero.
