Now Playing: SEGMENT: John Feodorov in "Spirituality"

About this video

Calling on his Native American heritage and sense of humor, John Feodorov sets tradition against modern-day kitsch to create a "hybrid mythology" in provocative multimedia installations. "I have this background," says Feodorov, "of a traditional Navajo and this sort of outsider Christian background of Jehovah Witnesses, which are completely opposed to each other. And I'm in the middle trying to make sense out of it." Filmed in Seattle, Washington, where the artist works and lives, the segment features "Office Shaman," a new performance/installation which humorously joins contemporary office culture with ritual healing and sacrifice.
