"Being There" review by Keith Sanborn
by Brian Boucher
much compression in digital imagery can be tolerated before an image's expression
and meaning are unacceptablycompromised?
The forced reduction of details in digital media are a well known restraint, one that artists have often utilized andcontextualized witha certain aesthetic pleasure.
Many makers have simply moved objects (or sometimes body parts)
a bitcloser to the lens
and therefore ask the viewer to move closer to the screen.
A video that is intended to be seen on a smallscreen reflects
something lively when showing objects life-size
-- or even larger,
closer than the real thing.
