“MICA-TV’s Cascade (vertical landscapes) is an example of a very different kind of video work, with constantly panning and shifting camera work creating a dialogue between architecture and landscape. Michael Smith’s humorous piece uses the camera work and production values of commercial television to very different ends. Paul Garrin’s video both documents an incident of police brutality in New York and further explores political activism and protest through the use of video”–Insert.
In Conversations Vito Acconci, with Steven Poser, delivers an interesting talk, almost a performance, about his work.
