  15. 15. So "New Canvas" still useful term. to describewhat was shown previously during AnimatedExeterGreg Kurcewicz website has text and video- follows fromThe Cinematic ExperienceOn Feb 13th, showing of Overstimulation
  16. 16. We do not really need a new technology.We have enough of it, even too much ofit, and only a few artists artist aredeploying it critically. In VJ-ing and much“live, digital” cinema I see just softwareand rarely communication. I am notimpressed with software, in the sameway that I am not simply impressed withmediums of cds, mini discs or even vinylrecords.
  17. 17. Digital technology opens up a whole new archive ofmaterial for artists but it is a leveller of images.Whereas we might all have many differencesculturally, and many different cultural reference points,we do have one thing in common: our nervoussystem. To get into a situation where we arequestioning our perception is in fact a greatcommonality, one that is achieved in manyexperimental films. To return our view to the real worldis a breakthrough for us at this moment in time. To re-discover the act of looking and a space for looking atsomething is a crucial and political act to undertake forartists.
