The Propeller Group: Fusion (After a Universe of Collisions)
A multidisciplinary collective made up of the artists Phunam Thuc Ha, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and Matt Lucero, The Propeller Group uses sophisticated digital tools to explore cultural and political phenomena. The group often crosses over into the commercial spheres of video production and even advertising, engaging the viral potential of mass media and pop culture to address sociopolitical issues in impactful ways. Recent projects have explored the musical and ritualistic affinities between Vietnamese funereal traditions and New Orleans second line processions, the celebrity status surrounding memorial images of Russian dictator Vladimir Lenin, and a commercial advertising campaign for the contemporary Communist Party.
