The Withness is a parafictional* collaborative project I organized with a group of my students at the University of Oklahoma in 2011. During a semester-long course we developed a 45-minute video that was composed of a series of discrete vignettes. The project was broken into modules we collectively decided on; these included ‘affectively-charged’ media spaces. For instance, this page highlights ‘horror’, ‘wresting’ and ‘cuteness’. Additionally, we produced a variety of objects and media elements to accompany the primary video. These included a 130 book, video game, and electro-mechanical sculptures.
