Scenes from the post-Soviet steppe
“Battle for the Square” and “Blind Alley” are among the 11 pieces of video art that curator Stefan Rusu has assembled for “Video Forecast,” the exhibition now up at the AUB Byblos Bank Art Gallery (AUBBBAG).
The idea of inviting strangers into their home is not new to Lily Taylor and Sean Miller. When the artistic couple lived in Denton, they participated in the (International) Home Theater Festival, a movement to take performance out of the theaters and use house venues. Recently, they became Dallas residents and the musician/video artist couple decided to open up their live/work studio to the public as Midway Gallery, a space dedicated to video art.
JEEPNEYS - MAGNETICS from Jeepneys AnnaLuisa on Vimeo.
A Jeepneys Musical Dance Video Art Spaceship.
MAGNETICS features a mutated alien bird creature dancing between multiple universes, groping for all of our senses through vibrant, permutating landscapes. It is a study in (dis)embodied movement, examining the alien body’s relationship to Earth and Outerspace, in the deep future and distant past, simultaneously. MAGNETICS is reminiscent of dreams not yet dreamt and worlds not yet known.

Nam June Paik’s Work at Asia Society
If you want someone to praise or blame for the relentlessly wired, chatty, information-soaked 21st-century world we inhabit, the artist Nam June Paik is an apt candidate. Credited as the founder of video art in the 1960s, he turned television into an interactive vehicle for radical theater. He invented the phrase “electronic superhighway” and imagined beta versions of smartphones, Google Glass, distant learning, YouTube, Instagram and the Internet itself.
It doesn’t seem quite correct to label “The Clock” as a film; it certainly isn’t a traditional example of a movie. But the act of watching “The Clock” inside the dark gallery is essentially a moviegoing experience….
