Joseph M Gillette
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: In a culture of consumption the saying, “you are what you eat,” takes on several meanings. Every day, our interpersonal exchanges are increasingly mediated by the images and sound bytes of our popular culture. What we do in our private moments is a meditation on these exchanges; the result is our individual output, the "I" we present to the world.
Joseph Gillette is a storyteller who lives and works in Brooklyn. In projects like Une Semaine de Google and PARTY FOOD, Mr. Gillette uses new tools and technologies to condense the ever-expanding culture of media into smaller, more digestible pieces, not unlike a bird feeding its young. His work, which explores a territory known as “Neo Media So-Real-ism,” is a passionate attempt to connect with the viewer through the only language we all speak: media.
