Remix VJing

I thought it would be a good direction to show what I do within my Master’s program. I view Girl Talk’s work as similar to some of my video mixing work, I take video for many sources and use them as part of large-scale video installations. I also work with digital audio and samples.

    I am not sure what the video communicates — is it showing your work and comparing it to Girl Talk’s? I had to replay the beginning to get that because the text goes by very fast at the start.

    I was more talking about the nebulous world of “new media art” which I consider both Girl Talk and myself to be a part of.

    I suggest you beef up the text in your blog post a bit, for the sake of this week’s commenters.

    I love modern ballet companies. I wasn’t trained at a dancer, but I was trained at interpreting and critiquing them. I learned about the qualities to look for, the vocabulary to use, criterion and processes, and ultimately how to tell a good show from an uninteresting one. If new media artists, like you and Girl Talk, are just figuring out yourselves what you are doing, how does the culture adapt to tell the good from the bad, the provocative from the redunant, the talent from the rubish? How does academia formalize this kind of education? How do you end up with a three-credit college course on new media art critism?

    The photos of you at then end left me with questions about the atmosphere and audience of your installations and how you expect to be treated as an artist. How do you communicate the vocabulary, interpretation, and importance to your audience?

    BTW: I love Girl Talk. He’s going to play three solid days in Pittsburgh when they open the new ampitheater. But, if you didn’t know about my obsession, check out my Sept. 10 post about Girl Talk.
