Screening of “Ways of Something,” Episodes 1–3

Mar 5, 2015



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


7:00 p.m.


Lisa Miller’s video work Ways of Something (2014) consists of one-minute videos by fifty-eight web-based artists over four episodes in a contemporary remake of John Berger’s BBC documentary Ways of Seeing (1972). The resultant collage of 3D renderings, animated GIFs, film remixes, and webcam performances encapsulate the cacophonous conditions of art making since the advent of digital media and the internet. Ways of Something is constituted by aesthetically diverse interpretations of Berger’s ideas, creating a new perspective on the act of looking.

A screening of the first three episodes of Ways of Something took place in the Grand Luxe Hall. 

Ways of Something was commissioned by The One Minutes at the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam.
