i was lead eventually to the video art clip embed below, first by checking out the link on a twitter feed from ‘creative review’ proclaiming today’s obsession, “the new aesthetic” –
so then i scanned – rather than read – the piece on the featured blog, imprint magazine which described patric king’s observations re the approach and technical mediation of the new aesthetic as:
Partially-downloaded images, pixellated surfaces, blocks of mosaic color, broken wireframes, pinned maps, censored images, polygon battles, software glitches, imagemaps, depth maps, unfolded 3d texturemaps, and graphs.
this meant i needed to go to the source, so the next step took me to the blog called “The New Aesthetic” which features a number of examples of this fractellated vision. all different, all slightly akimbo.
and yes, hands on hips, it looks between one’s legs at a vision of the world.
jumped then via the link under the still image, to the vimeo site making the queen (her majesty)’s image out of fragments of video, a collage of moving patches, sort of like picasso-braque meets video meets jigsaw technology.
why look at a still photo when you can have movement?
