| video moments | borrowed

February 16, 2007
The work Inverted Affects, by Lisa Bey, starts from a series of videos made by young and teenagers with the cameras of their mobiles. All the videos, most of them anonymous, are freely available on the net and have been gathered by Laura Bey straight from some of the most famous and visited videoblogs. The videos “borrowed” here bear witness to scenes of young violence, fights and many diverse clashes. However, in many of them, it is easy to detect that these violent scenes have been feigned and recorded; these performances of street violence have been made by the youths themselves as some kind of game or entertainment to be then enjoyed and shared through the videos of its entry. This work was included in the e-show “Link-a” curated by Juan Martín Prada and produced by MediaLabMadrid (Madrid, Spain)and was awarded with the third prize of Biennal IbizaGraphic 2006 (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Ibiza.[via Rhizome]In order to watch it , you need to have latest version of Flash player installed on your computer.
