Will Benedict makes videos which depict digital worlds populated by aliens on talk shows, gluttonous beds, and talking dolphins. Through a near religious commitment to television, he subverts the conventions of popular infotainment genres such as music videos, YouTube tutorials, cooking shows, advertising, and talk shows. In this way, he makes us feel what it’s like to live in an infinitely malleable realm, in other words, in the present.
