Project October-Bryant Dameron

Just got an e-mail from a video artist-Bryant Dameron. He is working on Project October, which is really worth checking out. Also his blog.

I think his work is really interesting and his artist statement is concise and informative:

In a world of media saturation the 2D image is validation. Stoic screens leave us more connected to unnatural, flat celebrity faces than to our rarely seen next-door-neighbors. We feel a power over the strange 2D world where we can “pause, rewind or fastfoward live TV,” that doesn’t exist anywhere else in life. Flickering ghost simulacra is our new longing. The digital experience created here is as much a simulation of experience as the idea is a simulation of an ideal.
