M. Woods is a media terrorist
M. Woods is a Latinx-American media terrorist working in avant-garde film, video art, photography, collage, sound design, performance, curation, installation, music composition, and immersive media. He is a member of Kiira Benzing’s Double Eye Studios, a board member at The Vast Lab in Los Angeles, a represented artist and guest curator at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, and a co-founder of the avant-garde international union Agitate: 21C. His short film work is distributed by Collectif Jeune Cinema. He has released over forty short films, two feature films, VR and is working on the completion of the Numb Spiral. His work has been shown at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Venice Biennale, Tribeca Film Festival, Artists’ Television Access, Experimental Response Cinema, the Museum of Human Achievement, Pleasure Dome/PIX Gallery, AgX, La Lumiere Collective, Collectif Jeune Cinema's Paris Festival of Different and Experimental Cinemas, LUFF, MUFF Marseilles, Fracto, Images Contre Nature, Festival Tout Courts Aix en Provence, and he won the top prize at the 2017 Montreal Underground Film Festival.
Woods' work chronicles the spread of the Numb Spiral, the results of a digital sickness that manifests itself in the codification and symbolic negation of being. His work is a fashioned attack against the institutional structures of white supremacy and the alpha male fantasy.
The Numb Spiral is the point at which consciousness negates being, and a cruel illusion maintains control of the flailing senses. What begins as apathy, surreptitiously devolves into solipsism and nihilism, until the infected succumbs to the perception of total illusion. The Digital Sickness is the evil at the heart of mediated representation, and in tandem with spectacle and the negation of the simulacra, the Digital Sickness marches onwards towards the eradication of the real and the propagation of its double.
