INTERNET MOUNTAINS Video 5,  2016

 

Duration – 40 minute seamless loop (1 minute detail shown)
Video format – 1080p HD
Exhibition – lightbox or projection
Soundtrack – silent

 

The internet is full of mountains, they’re the ultimate object – but these are mountains you can’t touch, or walk on, because they’ve been dissolved into math and reconstituted into weightless images. This project explores the frontier spaces between major art categories, including art before and after the internet. Many art world boundaries have recently become dotted lines. But broader dichotomies remain, to be challenged as true or false: time-based versus non-time-based; generative versus solely artist-made; the tangible versus the untouchable; proto-cinema versus post-cinema; montage versus motif.
