Bug Hunt

Game On

I’m not a fan of video art, but not sure why. Sometimes I think when the execution is abstract, it lacks purpose and gets buoyed by explication. Or when it’s referential, it smacks of clever (and nowadays is far better executed online than in the gallery). Maybe I’m just behind the times.

But last week whilst wandering through the Hunter MFA Open Studios, I got mesmerized by Robert Debbane’s 90 second Bug Hunt. It’s a great tapestry of abstract + referential and has since made me start questioning my previous stance.
