Stevens, Grant William (2006) The feeling. [Visual Artwork]
In this video, a thumping house-music track is accompanied by lines of rotating text, which resemble computer screen-savers. The text is sourced from websites offering tips for dating and seducing potential lovers.
This work engages with the language of online forums. It reworks text from online advice forums and mixes them with visual codes of computer graphics. By extending on some of Nicolas Bourriaud’s ideas around ‘postproduction’ and the creative and critical strategies of ‘editing’, it offers new speculative perspectives on the relationship between screen realities, desire and romance.
