The future is boring

May 25th, 2011 — 4:00am

“I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that’s my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again… the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul.” – J.G. Ballard

video art not

May 10th, 2011 — 11:42pm

This is an unpublished piece/rant I wrote about the history of video art in Australia for the video void series at the CCP in Melbourne in  2010. It talks about the shift away from screen culture to the gallery as the default place to show video, you can read it here

Its not enough that one has to suffer through inane video art works at times, you also have to endure it with the most uncomfortable seating ever designed in the world. Now I am sure when curators selected the video art  for these kinds of shows they were sitting in a comfortable chair. At least in a theatrical screening the video art may be uncomfortable and difficult to sit through but  at least your arse is well cushioned.
