Our latest Art Channel film explores the extraordinary immersive and interactive films produced by teamLab, a collective inspired by ‘pre-modern’ Japanese painting and contemporary popular Japanese culture such as anime and video gaming. teamLab’s sophisticated mastery of programming and design produces mesmerising spectacles in virtual reality. Their work anticipates a whole new frontier for art and new media.
The Art Channel visits an exhibition investigating the ‘Uncanny’ in Art Photography. We look at the sensation of both strangeness and familiarity in an image. Focussing on individual works by Sonja Braas, David Claerbout, Julie Monaco and Joel Sternfeld, the film explores how ‘magical surfaces’ arise from photographs which are animated, invented and staged.
The latest film on The Art Channel is online where we review Andy Warhol from The Hall Collection at The Ashmolean, Oxford University’s museum. To subscribe to The Art Channel, visit www.youtube.com/theartchannel1
