[AD]Venture Capital

by Marissa Sean Cruz
with support from The Khyber Centre for the Arts

[AD]Venture Capital is a video analysis of the tourism industry’s relationship to power, capital, and surveillance. In it, the artist crafts a surreal portrait of a popular military vehicle-turned-tour-bus attraction’s mascot, The Harbour Hopper Frog. This character longs for a civilized life while trapped in a matrix database known as "DigiLand."

In a blend of manipulated drone footage, webcam recordings, and pop cultural imagery [AD]Venture Capital is a poetic narrative documenting information privacy and image circulation amidst a muddling of online/offline landscapes.
