Michael DiFeo uses the clandestine history of our government as a medium and then politicizes it. Steeped in research, he explores the aesthetics of redaction and secrecy using official declassified documents as raw materials for collage and animation. He is interested in illuminating this parallel clandestine history and speculating about what is yet to be discovered.
