The thing I always appreciated about Cory's work was they were one liners that somehow commented on the boneheaded one-liner nature of so much new media art, and at the same time had a seductive, homegrown quality. That dimension was missing in the Team show--it was too much like the work he used to satirize. There is practically no space between the Colors piece and Jason Salavon's Titanic piece.

I like the keystoning piece, but its appeal is mainly to curators and preparators who know about keystoning from a "setting up media shows" perspective. It has insider appeal as opposed to the universal appeal of something like Landscape Study--a banal suburban roofscape compressed into a game cartridge, presented on a battered old TV on a stretch of shag carpet.
