Abstract:

"Vancouver is a final destination. A landscape of unbearable and limiting entrapment sits sidelong a soft and supportive cradling to create a central dichotomy: the seductive and dreamy indolence of the lotus-eaters sleeping, and the inevitability of a dead end." "How do geography, architecture, and landscape affect and impact upon the qualities and pursuits of the media artist? What does their work bear in responsibility and offer in response? Where does the individual artist sit in relation to this paradigm of landscape, of spiritual journey, and where does it lead? Can the conflicts between nature and culture, the public and the private be resolved, and should we even seek this resolution?" "Experimental media is often, if not crucially, an engagement with structural, syntactical innovation. This dependence on the basics of form, on the importance of rhetoric - visual and textual - places this kind of media at the forefront of the production of meaning. That is, a meaning that makes a difference - an active agency for both the creator and the viewer." "DAMP is a critical affair with contemporary Vancouver media art, a visually exuberant and materially committed work that is on the vanguard of conceptual endangerment, symbiotic of Form and content, an art - infused statement of the city's media art scene - now."--BOOK JACKET.
