2011 banzai films by brad brace: 

please download, then view: 176*144 vlc recommended; these films were all made with
a palm-sized $100 camera and perplexing open-source software; the artist has been
refused corrupt-bogus cultural/institutional funding, employment, and representation
for 40 years; the time has long come to wash-away this stupidly-obscene feudal
arts-system. For every star-driven enterprise there are corollary benefits for those
who support it and keep their mouths shut. Admit the truth and have it retched from

terminated. De-fund the arts to end the evil global empire.  banzai!

most institutional-art of the mediocre-evil-empire remains bound up with sign-play:
it's a meta-art largely dependent on its echoes of past psuedo-radicalism, or
conversely on its witty frisson-laced inversions of orthodox notions of what makes
art edgy, experimental, important... but when art styles finally shed all those
ghost traces of corrupt history and achieve a perfact non-referential blankness, the
past will cease to be a museum or even an archive, and become a simply a set of  
resources: materials to be used without reverence or nostalgia... no longer pointing
to the past, art will be ready to reconnect to the world happening beyond the
