Work 394. Digitally Deconstructing the BBC Newsreader

Fiona Bruce DD
BBC Newsreader Digital Deconstruct
c. Michael St. Mark 2010

The BBC newsreader and moralistic sellout ( an unspoken prerequisite ) Fiona Bruce, who along with  George Alagiah; is one of the more dedicated and enthusiastic purveyors of pernicious untruths within the westeren Mainstream Media . Well able to casually and without trace of emotion or hint of question, recite and tot up the daily slaughter toll of soldiers and civilians in an illegal, pointless and unwinnable war… then move swiftly and cheerfully on to the next piece of biased propagandist sludge scrolling down the British Brainwash Corporation’s London newsroom prompter.
Under Dada digital deconstruct, we glimpse the twisted lies, selective edits, double talk and half-truths that issue daily from her sugar-coated bought-off corporate lips.
Pass the sick bag Auntie.

                                                                         UPDATE; April 2014

The Warhol Museum has recently received a set of images, doodles, and photos created by the seminal pop artist on a Commodore Amiga home computer. The artworks, made by Warhol as part of a collaboration with Commodore Amiga, had been stranded on Amiga floppy disks for almost twenty years after the artist saved them in the mid-1980s. They were only discovered and rescued from their obsolete format thanks to the chance viewing of a YouTube clip.… ( links Here )

The video of Warhol’s forays into Amiga art piqued the interest of new media artist Cory Arcangel. In 2011, Arcangel contacted Tina Kukielski, a curator at the Carnegie Museum of Art. Together, they asked Matt Wrbican, the Warhol Museum’s chief archivist, if they could search for files on the artist’s disks. They were also connected to the Carnegie Mellon University Computer Club, a group, as the Warhol Museum notes, known for its collection of “obsolete computer hardware” and its “prize-winning retro-computing software development.”

“The images included doodles and experiments with Warhol’s existing works”

The images they found include doodles, photographs, and experiments with Warhol’s existing artworks. One image is a crude recreation of his world-famous Campbell’s soup can, its proportions skewed and its colors drawn in scratchy, MS Paint-esque lines. Another piece is a three-eyed doodle on a pre-rendered version of Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus. ” ( below)

The retrieved soupcan Amiga doodle, this time with the Artist’s digital signiture – why doesn’t a signiture also appear on his alleged ” Birth of Venus” Work? And where is the standard green Amiga info strip that should be at top of the image?
Could the Venus Work possibly be a fake, engineered by Cory, Matt Wrbican; and Tina Kukielski, and inspired by the latter-day Dada three-eyed Fiona Bruce image? Was the Warhol signiture perhaps too difficult to replicate on the Venus image; instead a most un-Warhol-like impersonal AH motif added in its stead?

You decide, as they say….
