  16. 16. We do not really need a new technology. We have enough of it, even too much of it, and only a few artists artist are deploying it critically. In VJ-ing and much “live, digital” cinema I see just software and rarely communication. I am not impressed with software, in the same way that I am not simply impressed with mediums of cds, mini discs or even vinyl records.
  17. 17. Digital technology opens up a whole new archive of material for artists but it is a leveller of images. Whereas we might all have many differences culturally, and many different cultural reference points, we do have one thing in common: our nervous system. To get into a situation where we are questioning our perception is in fact a great commonality, one that is achieved in many experimental films. To return our view to the real world is a breakthrough for us at this moment in time. To re- discover the act of looking and a space for looking at something is a crucial and political act to undertake for artists.
