Assuming a deconstructive take on propriety, Animal Charm (aka Rich Bott & Jim Fetterley) began creating videos as an act of Electronic Civil Disobedience. Diving the dumpsters of video production companies and scrounging through countless hours of industrial, documentary, and corporate video footage, Animal Charm often edit tapes in a live mix session before an audience. By re-editing images derived from a wide variety of sources, they scramble media codes, creating a kind of tic-ridden, convulsive babble, their disruptive gestures often investing conventional forms with subversive meanings.
