This week on Art Uncovered my guest is Carl Deihl. Carl is a Portland-based artist whose work examines the intersections between folklore and the supernatural and communications technology. His projects take the form of video essays and pseudo-scientific lectures that use unexplained phenomena, like Big Foot  and poltergeists,  as  jumping off points to investigate the glitches, errors, and unexpected aberrations of obsolete technologies. These projects fall under a body of work called “Metaphortean Research” —- a term Carl coined to describe his process —  which he explains on the show.

Carl recently finished a residency at the Experimental Television Center in Owego, New York, as well as performed at the Observatory Room here in Brooklyn.

Carl spoke with me recently over the phone from Portland about Metaphortean Research, circuit bending and a new project he’s working on that deals with a famous hoax involving a disgruntled atheists, a stone giant and P.T. Barnum.
