Paul B. Johnson



My practice is a social critique. Through a mastery of parody and cynicism I aim to highlight our susceptibility and willingness to fall under the spell of modern media, particularly through the mechanisms of television editing, distribution and assimilation.

Reality and fantasy regularly occupy the same space in television, as scripted reality shows fill the listings. Through digital video I wish to focus on the moment we realize we are being fooled – the moment the imaginary fourth wall breaks down – and meditate on our complicity in the illusion, as we allow ourselves to be deceived.
