VEO VEOH (2020)
text. Jai Geller and Mirror Machete
video and music. Mobéy Lola Irizarry
VEO VEOH is about the eponymous tagger from Saukiog (hartford, CT.) In this story, VEO has seen the progession from pre/nocolonial Indigenous Saukiog, it's subsequent violent conquest by europeans, the rise of hartford as an arms-based industrial hub, white flight and the subsequent disinvestment and abandoment of the Black/Brown/Latinx populations of Hartford, and the contemporary stages of gentrification that are situated within this legacy of colonialism.
Parallel to this all-knowing eye, VEO VEOH chronicles another eye. Hartford Police Department's overfunded, near-omnipresent security camera network. Trouble ensues.
