In American Reflexxx the artist Signe Pierce is violently pushed to the ground. The mob circles and laughs until one guy steps in, bends down while smoking his cigarette and says “This the wrong place to die”. Is he referring to the boardwalk at Myrtle Beach where the footage was shot or the YouTube hateful comments where the video lives today?

“The ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is *de facto* good.” This leaked memo from Facebook goes on to say “maybe it costs a life by exposing someone to bullies. Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools.” 

This the wrong place to die looks at how artists conjure death as a way of life.
