THE RIGHT TO SIN
The future of surveillance is a critical, yet largely overlooked, issue foreshadowing the path our modern world is rapidly approaching. The all-inclusive surveillance of activity calls for censorship not only on wrongdoing, but also on thought. In a projection installation, The Right to Sin is a statement against mass surveillance by speaking on it from a political perspective, then distills this numbingly complex issue to a personal level. kinghinna studios, 2017.
A KINGHINNA DOCUMENTARY SERIES
the beginning sequence to my independently produced documentary series, HUMAN introduces the concept of searching for the primary factors that define the human race. For Impulse Magazine, a fashion and culture publication at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
I, along with a group of 8 other student journalists at the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign, worked with CU Citizen Access to host a community event discussing the local impact of an ACA repeal. Us student journalists were sent off to find and interview diverse sources to gather multiple perspectives on Obamacare and its possible repeal. In the end we produced a series of four documentaries, all shining light on polar opposite perspectives on the matter. The piece was published onto the media company's website, broadcasted during the event, as well as received coverage on the 21st, a radio show on a local WILL station. Charles Ledford, assistant professor of Journalism at UIUC, commented on the semesters' work our group of students had put into coverage of healthcare, "Because of their very narrow focus, these short films distill a numbingly complex issue down to its human fundamentals in a way I don't think we've seen locally."
