Jon Keith Brunelle, the founder of The Psychasthenia Society, calls his work laptop storytelling: rapid-fire digital slide shows comprising hundreds of vintage movie stills, remixed to form satiric new stories that he tells in live voiceover. Various editions of The Hammer Variations, Jon's remix of the movie Kiss Me Deadly, have been featured at Collective: Unconscious and P.S. 122, and in New York gallery events. At the turn of the century, Jon curated and performed in Stories from the Future, produced by The Moth at Joe's Pub. The Nanolove Report, written by Jon and performed by The Psychasthenia Society, enjoyed a successful run at Collective: Unconscious in 2005 and 2006. Further New York appearances include Monkey Town, Dixon Place, Forward Motion Theater, Grace Exhibition Space, and 92YTribeca.
 
Jon's current project is his motivational PowerPoint lecture, Better Love Through Surveillance.
