August 24, 2008

This week's episode (#75) features our 2004 interview with Sound and Video collage artist, Steev Hise (Check it out HERE). As I continue to upload (and re-air) some of our older interviews with Some Assembly Required artists, I feel compelled to also do a little updating on the artists, as to what they've been up to since we aired the interview...

Steev has gone in a slightly different direction, though he's still working with video and he's always been very politically active. His recent film, "On The Edge: The Femicide in Ciudad Juarez" is a documentary which exposes the killings of hundreds of women in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. The murders have been largely ignored by police and government since 1993, and the film points out a number of sociopolitical reasons for why this may be. The film is available on DVD from illegal art. Find out more, under the category of "Video Activism," HERE.

Steev has shown his work in Europe, Australia, and throughout the Americas. We had him out to perform in Minneapolis, in 2001. Checkout his website HERE and the 2007 SAR Q&A with Steev Hise HERE.

Thanks for listening,
Jon Nelson
