Norman Cowie Characteristics
Ranging from collaborative documentaries to video art, Cowie's work interrogates the relations of power and domination in contemporary society, and seeks to problematize the ways in which meaning and consent are constructed through the media. Cowie's videotapes often use the techniques of documentary, off-air appropriation, and short form sound and text collage. Currently a video producer and a professor teaching media theory and production, Cowie has been drawn toward media literacy as an activist and pedagogical tool.
