"Art can’t fix anything. It can just observe and portray. What’s important is that it becomes an object, a thing you can see and talk about and refer to. A film is an object around which you can have a debate, more so than the incident itself. It’s someone’s view of an incident, an advanced starting point."
- Steve McQueen

Oneohtrix Point Never – “Still Life (Betamale)” / 2013 / Jon Rafman
"Visual artist Jon Rafman is more than adept at blending IRL and digital spaces, with artworks that explore the forced marriages between art and design. Earlier this year, he told Dazed how he seeks out the sublime online – an impulse which is taken to the bleakest and most savage extremes in the visual realm he created for Oneohtrix Point Never’s looming “Still Life (Betamale)”. Here, filmed and animated scenarios are merged, forming a fresh horror bourne from the detritus of our physical and digital environments.”

Center Jenny / 2013 / Ryan Trecartin
Ryan Trecartin’s movies unfold like futuristic fever dreams. Collaborating with his cast, Trecartin’s layered aesthetic reveals high-definition uncanniness, wherein digital life dynamics and gamesmanship merge with pop culture histrionics and banality. In CENTER JENNY, part of Trecartin’s presentation at the 55th Venice Biennale, his characters continuously evolve towards a post-human realm through reality show hermeneutics, prosumer rhetoric, and collegiate rituals. - copy paste from vdrome.org
