I am one of the artists in Ways of Something (episode 2): an incredible collaboration between artist Lorna Mills and (currently) 85 artists.
Episode 1 was released in September 2014.
Episode 2 had its online premiere at Hopes and Fears, 18th February 2015.
Episode 3 had its world premiere at The Photographer’s Gallery, London, on February 12th 2015.
Episode 4 was produced in late 2015 and should be available online soon.
All four episodes were aquired by The Whitney, New York, and shown as part of their Dreamlands exhibition in late 2016.
85 web-based artists remake John Berger’s historic documentary ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972) one minute at a time. Originally commissioned by The One Minutes, at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and curated/compiled by Lorna Mills, the episodes present a sequence of 3D renderings, filmic remixes, videos and webcam performances which subvert the tropes of art history in an entertaining and overwhelming way.
