My guest this week is video artist Jesse McLean. In her videos, Jesse draws on footage from films, reality tv, and YouTube — as will as her own footage — to craft narratives that examine our emotional relationships to media. She currently has a solo show up at Interstate Projects in Brooklyn. Jesse spoke with me over the phone from Chicago about her solo show, the role of appropriation in her work and how an obsession with Twilight fans contributed to her art practice.
