Guthrie Lonergan:
Versions is a version of Oliver Laric’s “Versions”.
Guthrie Lonergan is an artist/Internet surfer living and working in Los Angeles. His work confronts the new kind of home-made popular culture emerging on the Internet — mainstream DIY — finding something simultaneously life-affirming and disturbing about this infinite collection of the most mundane moments in peoples’ lives. Lonergan’s work often focuses on the defaults of consumer-level technology, and how these establish a foundation of banality for homemade content. Using these presets in iPhoto slideshows or YouTube videos, Lonergan approaches the Internet from the most basic user’s perspective. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the New Museum in New York and in the first Internet Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, and has been written about in Artforum and the Wall Street Journal. He is a co-founder of Nasty Nets (www.nastynets.com) Internet surfing club. All of his work can be seen on his website, http://www.TheAgeOfMammals.com.

Michael Robinson:
Light Is Waiting (2007, 11 min.)
A very special episode of television’s Full House devours itself from the inside out, excavating a hypnotic nightmare of a culture lost at sea. Tropes of video art and family entertainment face off in a luminous orgy from which neither will survive.

Since the year 2000, Michael Robinson has created a body of film, video and photography work exploring the poetics of loss and the dangers of mediated experience. His work has screened in both solo and group shows at a variety of festivals, cinematheques and galleries including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival, The Times BFI London Film Festival, Media City, Anthology Film Archives, Viennale, Cinematexas, The Wexner Center for the Arts, ICA London, Impakt, The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Chicago Filmmakers, PDX, and the San Francisco, Oberhausen, and Hong Kong International Film Festivals. Michael currently teaches filmmaking at Binghamton University. Visit him at http://www.poisonberries.net

  1. Such a great subject for a post! Heres a trick I use when chguat “sniping” a portrait: If Im drawing my target, and they happen to look up and meet my gaze, Ill immediately look off to the side of them, looking down at my book and back up to my fake target, complete with wiggling my pen to suggest I’m still sketching this imaginary object. Often they will watch me do this for a few seconds, and relax. Once their guard is down, I resume! This usually buys me enough time to finish my sketch. Other times, the target will deploy counterintelligence, and try to slyly walk behind me to check my book. Then I get a taste of how it feels to be watched. Im enjoying your blog very much, it was also great to catch you at Blizzard and CTNX!
