Part of Subject/Object
A hypnotic three-sequence meditation manifesting Indigenous retro-futurism, as the story travels from an idyllic Haida Gwaii through America’s gross media misrepresentations of Indigenous cultures, to a terrorized landscape and people resulting from a relentless globalization.
Towustasin is a multimedia artist from Old Massett, Haida Gwaii. He has founded his own unique and eclectic style through the combination of song, poetry, music video and film.
