So…

…what will be the US reaction be to Washington Post journalist Khashoggi’s disappearance and murder (by dismemberment) in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey? Absolutely nothing. The US makes billions from weapons sold to Saudia Arabia in addition to the Saudis financial investment in the US military, remember on 9/11 when Saudis officials in DC and NYC were flown back to Saudi Arabia in private jets before the feds had an opportunity to question them? And right now the US has been cashing in on the biggest humanitarian crisis in a century by supporting the Saudi-lead attacks on Yemen through missile sales and a complete and utter lack of ethics and heart in search of oil.

About kelleybrannonprojects

From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago: I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating. CURRENT PROJECTS: Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful. On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
