"Mass-media buzzwords, decontextualized to the point of meaninglessness, pile up on your screen until they form an unintelligible landfill of political agendas. Progressively loading images--of riot police and flag burners, for instance--symbolizing all-too-familiar "official representations" communicate their meaning even before they come into focus. But here, information consumers get a chance to intervene through well-known command buttons that offer such options as "eject," "cancel," and "progress." Andy Deck's Progressive Load is an intelligent take both on the formation of our collective (un)conscious through the mass media and on ways of engaging public opinion. "Canceling" images from your computer screen may not attract much attention, but it's definitely more cost-effective than throwing the TV out the window, old Network-style."
