No Is Yes examines the inevitable co-option of counter culture through two teenage girls that accidentally kill and mutilate their favorite rockstar. It is inspired by MTV' s habitual use of experimental film and video techniques to render elaborate ads for their specialized product - the pop-star. It is further inspired by fashion advertising which is styled after various artist's work (ie. Nan Goldin, Larry Clark, etc...). Many of these artists used photography to document "counter-culture", and/or to critique popular culture. This accentuates the irony, as these these stylized versions of their work re-enter the world in the form of advertisements.
