WAYS OF SOMETHING is Lorna Mills’s astonishing update of John Berger’s seminal BBC program WAYS OF SEEING (1972). Featuring the work of 114 digital and web artists from around the world, the project consists of a series of one-minute videos produced in response to Berger’s original insights on art and society. The result, a delirious and revelatory collection of 3D renderings, GIFs, webcam performances, appropriated media, desktop preparations, and websites, describes the cacophonous conditions of art making after the Internet. HD Video. (Amy Beste)
