Attack of the Clones, Part 4

Steven Read - Please Wait

Steven Read, Please Wait, 2005 (via VVork)

Cory Arcangel - Screen Burn

Cory Arcangelís Panasonic TH42PV60EH Plasma Screen Burn, 2007 (also via VVork)

Bonus: Nominee for Worst Theoretical Justification for an Artwork in 2007

from T.Whid:
Arcangelís "Panasonic TH42PV60EH Plasma Screen Burn" is brash and bold, it says "fuck you, Iím fucking up this expensive piece of equipment. Why? Because Iím motherfucking Cory Arcangel thatís why!" Steven Read's piece is nitpicky and fussy. His piece says ďlook! I wrote a program to destroy an obsolete piece of hardware. Why? Because Iím a geek." Arcangelís piece is about fucking with consumer dreams. Read's piece is aboutÖ time and phosphors?
I would personally like to see Arcangel going back to destroying obsolete pieces of hardware instead of acting like a jaded rock star. I know some artists who could do some cool things with that plasma screen. (Also, we're taking it on faith that the screen is actually destroyed--in any case, if the gallery sells it, it's contractually tied up as an expensive name plate, which is practically the same thing.)
