complicated and confused.
The remix is about altering history, about confusing identities, about shifting through layers of reference to reclaim and reprogram. SKOTE re-presents our performance, our remix in a variety of contexts to glorify the form. Our practice is rooted in the historical politic of camp with a captial C. Speaking through an/others voice has been the contemporary condition for along time now and we are still amazed. Our body of work comes from this process…copies of copies of copies, a type of decay we appreciate and aestheticize. SKOTE is a media construction — recorded, reprogramed and duplicated ad-nauseum – we cut, we alter, we edit, we let go, again and again and again. This is nurturing.
