Video Killed the Philosophy Star

Incidence of Catastrophe (1987-88) is video artist Gary Hill's adaptation of Maurice Blanchot's short novel Thomas the Obscure (pdf), an "ontological narrative" with being itself as its focus. Why Do Things Get in a Muddle? (Come On Petunia) (1984) is his adaptation of a metalogue from Gregory Bateson's Steps to an Ecology of Mind (pdf).

The Woolworths Choir of 1979

The 2012 Turner Prize for modern art has been awarded to video artist Elizabeth Price for her work The Woolworths Choir of 1979 (excerpt). Price beat a number of contenders, including visual artist Paul Noble (nominated for a series of pencil drawings of a fantastic metropolis named Nobson Newtown), Luke Fowler (with a film titled All Divided Selves, about the controversial Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing) and the splendidly named performance artist Spartacus Chetwynd. Before winning the Turner Prize, Price was best known as a member of 1980s indiepop band Talulah Gosh, though is by no means the only former member to have a notable post-band career.

Our Bright DocFuture

DocFuture (previously) is a video artist who creates bizarre and insightful (NSFW audio, also previously) Dadaist pastiches of pop-culture. His latest video (NSFW) is a confusing and relentless satire of YouTube culture that is equal parts ambitious and absurd. Yes, even more ambitious than a comprehensive playthrough of a Sonic the Hedgehog game that doesn't technically exist

"[YouTube and Vimeo are] ... still stuck in this broadcast-mode type of mentality where you post something and it’s there, and any sort of interactivity takes place in the form of a list"

River of the Net is a way to view short, tag-related videos without any sort of context. This interview explains things a little more. I've had some NWS content pop up (though not much), just as fair warning. [more inside]

If I can't dance, I don't wanna be part of your (information) revolution.

Mortal Engine (highlights; interview) and Glow (interview) combine dancing and projected video to stunning effect. The secret? The dancers aren't following the light — the light is following the dancers. [more inside]

Eye Candy, Politics and WTF?

Dreamies. It's 1972, and affable salaryman and good husband Bill Holt quits his good job at 3M to become a musical pioneer from the comfort of his own basement. The resulting album, Dreamies, is notable for its generous and ahead-of-its-time use of sampling/plunderphonics and became a highly sought-after lost classic until its re-release this year. Bill now has his own website, also called Dreamies, where he releases Eye Candy and Politics in liberal doses. Some are hypnotic, some are, for want of a better term, 'relaxing', others are anything but. And all of them are subtly infused with the slightly unsettling taste of Huh?

The 'demoscene':

The 'demoscene': Have you got the latest UltraforceTitanium10000-equipped desktop computer? The latest PDA? The latest Java Virtual Machine and the latest browser? Or have you got an 18 year old ZX Spectrum? Or a Commodore Amiga? Don't worry, there's always some way to show how powerful you machine of choice is. Demos have been around since the dawn of home computing and the best of them might someday be mistaken for video art.
