Ways of Something

85 artists, one minute at a time

12 March 2015, 18:30 - 20:30

Ways of Something is a contemporary remake of John Berger’s classic BBC documentary, ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972).
The project consists of one-minute videos by 85 web-based artists who commonly work with 3D rendering, GIFs, film remixes, webcam performances, and websites. The original audio track is retained,  disrupted by an exuberant series of 60-second artworks contributed by artists working across the world.

The Birmingham premiere of episodes 1-3 was followed by a discussion with artist Lorna Mills (via Skype), Dr Richard Clay, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at University of Birmingham and contributing artist Antonio Roberts (UK).

‘Ways of Something’ marks the official launch of Vivid Projects’ new programme RADICAL NETWORKS – check out the latest review below.
