Fox News in Chinese


Returning home at the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic left me without a studio and with a new nametag, the “Chinese Virus.” I wanted to redress the xenophobic speech in the news and decided to do so through Siri. This project, which began in March of 2020, ended up lasting till November 2020. It became a remix medium to address a number of socio-political matters leading up to the 2020 elections.


Fox News in Chinese is a performance series between Fox News anchors (1), an English speaker (2), a Chinese speaker (3), and Siri documented on paper. These performances are enacted through translations of a Fox News statement in the set order (1 => 2 => 3) using Siri’s translation capabilities between speakers. Original statements are sourced from Fox News on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or foxnews.com.

This work is part of a larger series which includes a video performance that illustrates the translation process. It is currently on view in Not Your Model Minority at the Stamp Gallery.

Special thanks to the Studio for Creative Inquiry, Matthew Brown (USA Today), and Professor Angela Washko.
