    Johanna Herr's work explores direct and indirect manifestations of state-sanctioned violence. Specifically, she am interested in the spectacular quality of contemporary screen-mediated, media-enriched, consumerism-as-nationalism. I am fascinated by the inherent cannibalism of the consumer eye, destroying other lives to constitute its own, when capitalism acts as a sublime life-force. When certain bodies become non-human and video game controllers cause real casualties. When fireworks look like missile strikes, tear gas and police lights feel like dance club ambiance, and you can buy a war rug on sears.com. While these phenomenona are by no means unique to America, my recent body of work examines these issues through the lens of the US, a country where she is , both by birth and culture, inextricably entrenched.
