"The United States is a conflict zone - a country at war.

Certainly now as it is openly engaged in military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan - it is zone engaged in conflict.

But also previous to September 11 2001 - the conflict being, for me, mainly a conflict between wealthy and poor in this country.

In a conflict zone - or at least in the United States - the media comes out very much on the side of the nation, or the side of power and wealth off of which they profit. I try to create alternative media that presents a counter perspective.

Often the inspiration for my animation comes from following this news and hearing something that disturbs me. I then try to take that issue and present it in my art in a way that I hope will show other people why I find it so disturbing. The media in America often glibly reports about what I consider to be awful things - militarism and policing. So I try to take their material very literally and present it in a way that I hopes conveys an alternative perspective. As of late a lot of this has been working with the absurd rhetoric coming out of the Bush Administration."                                                        - Haik Hoisington

The people of the Americas rise up to put an end to SOA terror.
