Ways of Something, Episodes 1-3
Western Front, Vancouver, Canada
Ways of Something is a contemporary remake of John Berger’s BBC documentary, Ways of Seeing (1972). Commissioned by The One Minutes at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and compiled by Lorna Mills, the project consists of one-minute videos by 58 web-based artists. The resultant collage of 3D renderings, animated GIFs, film remixes and webcam performances encapsulate the cacophonous conditions of art making since the advent of digital media and the Internet. Ways of Something is constituted by aesthetically diverse interpretations of Berger’s ideas, creating a new perspective on the act of looking.
