THE INTERMEDIALIST

'We are not used to thinking like this, all at once, or nonhierarchically, but the intermedialist does it naturally. Context rather than category. Flow rather than work of art.'

- Allan Kaprow

Very successful and creative use of screens at Burberry’s catwalk show, the results are just incredible.

Darwin Deez always makes interesting videos, but this one in particular struck a chord with me because of the stock-image esque scenes. Darwin looks on in the background, wondering if this is what life is meant to be all about - which reminded me of one of David Sherry’s drawings, it was the figure of the artist as a lone person standing on the side of the road (of life).

So both works can be seen as expressions of the melancholy feelings of alienation/exclusion from what is presented to us as the ideal way of life.
