Alex Da Corte and Jayson Musson Reflect on Consumerism in Whimsical Video Installation

Publish date:

Alex Da Corte and Jayson Musson collaborate on the four-channel video installation "Easternsports."

Explains Da Corte about the project, "The name comes from a poem that Jayson wrote in the early 2000s. In the poem, he makes reference to a westerner’s knowledge of Buddhism as ‘easternsports’. Westerners are encouraged to ‘find themselves’ and in that process we try on, then discard many ideologies, thus reducing them to trite intellectual garments, or a light pastime much akin to sports. The multichannel play cycles through five cycles of these ideological archetypes in attempt to chart and map the kinds of rituals we go through to achieve these cultural ideals."
