Raymond SH

`Raymond' is an artificial intelligence with the ability to create and broadcast propaganda in a variety of media. On November 18, 2003 he interrupted an NBC late night feature and transmitted his own program for almost twenty minutes. While his main issue is conspiracy theory, the intention of the tape is to create self-referential structures - similar to the ones used in those theories - by artistic means. 'Raymond' leaves you with an almost nostalgic feeling for the time when conspiracy theories were still an essential part of the counterculture - a time that is definitely over now SINCE THEY ARE DOING IT ALL IN THE OPEN NOW!
