Anyone familiar with the hinterlands of late-night talk radio and the ill-designed websites of the lunatic fringe will understand the source material for Robert Boyd’s Conspiracy Theory. Part of a larger work called Tomorrow People, this multi-channel video installation addresses the odd explanations we create to mollify our fear when confronted with experiences and events we don’t want to understand. Drawing from archival footage, homemade documentaries, and popular film, Boyd’s work juxtaposes frantic rhetoric with images of abduction and destruction. Chockfull of aliens, one-world government paranoia, and those who think 9/11 was “an inside job,” Conspiracy Theory is a dark look into the cold corners of American distrust. What it finds there is a world of reptilians, mind control, and red-faced shouting. It’s the same world that gave us The X Files, but Boyd dispenses with special agents and brings us face to face with the non-fictional proponents of global mistrust. PAC
