  • DOA - RIP

  • Artist: Flick Harrison
  • Year: 2013
  • Duration: 6:00
  • Country: Canada
  • A meditation on 3D television and the Na’vi that takes James Caeron’s medium and smashes it into his message. Avatar was about resource exploitation and respect for native culture, but Cameron shered in a new era of consumerism and pollution with 3D in the theatre and, later, at home. This work uses stacks of televisions gathered for free from Craigslist. Harrison performs the obsoletion of analog with a sledgehammer and a medley of last-broadcast sign-offs.
