YouTube Play, the biennial of creative video organized by the Guggenheim, YouTube, and HP, has been up for awhile, but tonight from 8-9:30pm the Guggenheim Museum in New York will host an event celebrating the project. The top videos, selected by an eclectic jury ranging from the likes of Laurie Anderson to Ryan McGinley, will be projected on the facade and in the interior rotunda, and there will live performances by OK Go, Kutman, LXD, Megan Washington and Mike Relm. If you can't make it in person, there will be a live stream as well.

Note: Next month on November 10th, we will run an essay by Saskia Korsten on one of the YouTube Play selections, Evelien Lohbeck's noteboek (2008), which will discuss the work as it relates to Korsten's concept of "reversed remediation."

Conrad Ventur Interview from INSIDE/OUT

(0)


This Is My Life (Shirley Bassey) by Conrad Ventur was one of my favorite pieces in PS1's "Greater New York," so I was delighted to come across this short interview with the artist on MoMA/PS1's INSIDE/OUT blog. Burrowed away in a small room in PS1's basement, the work involves a number of projectors looping performances by singer Shirley Bassey sourced from YouTube. Slowly rotating crystals hang over the lens of the projectors, refracting the images and illuminating the room in a soft, hazey light. Ventur discusses his interest in connecting to the past through repurposing old performance footage and the affective quality of his installations.

When R&B; singer Ginuwine's jam Pony came out in 1996, it became the classic soundtrack to grinding, and its (admittedly, hilarious) refrain "ride it, my pony" a fixture in American pop culture. More recently, A.Mart from Hamburger Eyes launched "Dancing Alone to Pony" -- a tumblr blog compiling solo videos of people dancing to the track. The site has encapsulated this micro-meme. Here are a few of the highlights, visit Dancing Alone to Pony for more.
