Beautification Machine is a device used to neutralize the fear spewed forth daily over the networks and transform polarizing media sources into vehicles of contemplation and peace. The Machine combines sculpture, projection, audio processing and random chance to manipulate realtime video feeds from FOX, MSNBC, etc. and then strip them of all rhetoric and partisanship. By creating an oasis of calm out of the very thing that makes it difficult to find peace, the viewer can break the patterns of fear instilled paralysis and find ways to enact positive change. Beautification Machine is a collaboration with sound artist Jon Bernson.
Diaz Hope lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
