"The term white noise, the 'sh' noise produced by a signal containing all audible frequencies of vibration, is sometimes used as slang (or a neologism) to describe a meaningless commotion or chatter that masks or obliterates underlying information."

I have just returned to the US. I am angry and frustrated.

I feel helpless and hopeless.

And I feel my future is being stripped away from me.

What becomes of a patriotism that is stomped on? Of a pride that once felt exciting and now feels disgusting? #whitenoise - A Neologism explores the underpinnings of the effect our current political system has on our human bodies. It smashes notions of nostalgia with possible realities - focussing on the fleeting nature of media that can leave us feeling helpless. From hyper-performativity to recounting past coping mechanisms to pop songs on cassettes, #whitenoise - A Neologism comments and questions our current affairs and where we go next.
