In developing Ctrl-Alt-Rht (2018-19) I wanted to respond to the aftermath of the Christ Church, New Zealand mass-murder in March 2019. My intention was not to make a documentary style work, nor a linear narrative, but to construct an open-ended plot that initially considered the language, reactions and responses employed by the media to frame a homegrown terrorist act. In short, Ctrl-Alt-Rht explores Australian white nationalist terrorism (alt-right groups), and online videogaming violence, through the increasing colonisation of space by virtual assistants. This tragedy and news media event coupled with the advancements in consumer AI (artificial intelligence) became the catalysts for Ctrl-Alt-Rht which takes a disturbing look at the new frontier of user generated content via voice activated servants.
