Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

What will techies of the future watch online? It may sound like a ridiculous question, but there are 1.2 million data-creating users per day worldwide. Will scholars refer back to classic Youtube or Youku Tudou videos the same way film critics and scholars do in their inflated publications? I wonder if in a few generations, instead of trawling libraries and public records, those trying to connect with their genetic heritage will watch hours upon hours of archived amateur video footage hoping to catch a glimpse of their great-grandma giving cultural commentary about the economic rise of China or hosting a beginner Guzheng tutorial. Maybe instead we’ll keep creating content, and fully realize the postmodernist vision of continual critique, revision, and newness. This isn’t unlike images created by Barbara Kruger, overlaid with text to tell us something damning about the artist, the audience, and the environment in which they were forced to interact. Kruger had the right idea, I think—don’t let the end of the sentence be the end of the discussion: keep creating.
