“Blasey Ford V Kavanaugh & the Split Brain Interface” presented by Garvey


Presentation Title:

  • Blasey Ford V Kavanaugh & the Split Brain Interface



  • The story of the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford and the rebuttal of Brett Kavanaugh as part of the Senate Nomination Hearings for Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court is retold using the split-brain interface. The design of the split-brain interface was first developed for the interactive documentary Anita und Clarence in der Hölle (trans. “Anita and Clarence in Hell”): An Opera for Split-Brains in Modular Parts. This project used documentary video from the 1991 Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the nomination of Judge Clarence Thomas to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
