Beyond the Televisual

There’s a feature article on Rhizome this week that does a great job of extending ideas I wrote about in 2001 to contemporary artists working in response to current internet/network culture. Ten years ago I was making and exploring art video that challenged our relationships to television and media culture, particularly the impact of televisual experiences on our psychological being. The article “Life Feed: Webcams, Art, and People” by Brian Droitcour provides an interesting overview of current artworks that explore psychological aspects of our personal relationships with the world wide web. The author acknowledges the history of video art — Vito Acconci’s Centers (1971); Richard Serra’s Boomerang (1974) — and Rosalind Krauss’s writing on the “aesthetics of narcissism” in relation to current work by Marisa Olson, Ryder Ripps, Guthrie Lonergan, and Petra Cortright in advance of a current exhibition by Jeremy Bailey and Antoine Catala.
