The Overpass Light Brigade: Art + Electronics in the Wisconsin Uprising.

Interview by Nathaniel Stern.

Wisconsin has arguably been ground zero for union busting, DIY social 
movements, corporate takeover of government, and divisive - and often 
misinformed - political debate in the US for more than a year. And the 
Overpass Light Brigade (OLB), initiated by Milwaukee artists Lane Hall 
and Lisa Moline, have been a guiding light - literally - in how 
ground-up messaging and change can happen. Now a collaboration between 
many people, the OLB relies on an ever-widening community of activists, 
artists, thinkers, and do-ers for their "Signs of Resistance." After a 
few rounds of local rye whiskey at Milwaukee's Riverwest Public House 
Cooperative - one of the only Co-op bars in the country - Nathaniel 
Stern did an email back and forth with OLB co-founder Lane Hall to find 
out more about what makes them tick, how they see themselves, and where 
the movement they are a part of is headed.


Nathaniel Stern (USA / South Africa) is an experimental installation and 
video artist, net.artist, printmaker and writer. He has produced and 
collaborated on projects ranging from interactive and immersive 
environments, mixed reality art and online interventions, to digital and 
traditional printmaking, latex and concrete sculpture - often with 
kinetic parts. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art and 
Design at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.
