Boing Boing tv covers Brody

posted at 15:07 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

Brody Condon’s “Performance Modifcation (Nauman)” gets the BBtv treatment today.

10 performers outfitted in medieval/space/fantasy armor re-create Bruce Nauman’s 1973 work “Tony Sinking into the Floor, Face Up and Face Down”. Performed in slow motion and combined with movements based on computer game death animations, this piece is accompanied by a high volume binaural beats reputed to induce out of body experiences.

It’s pretty lame how BBtv seems to strip out the Nauman reference in the piece. I understand that it’s not their audience, but couldn’t they take a little bit of a stab at it? Boing Boing seems pretty allergic to contemporary art so it’s unsurprising.
