[ISEA2012] Artist Statement: Chip Lord – ANT FARM MEDIA VAN V.08 (TIME CAPSULE) 1970-2008

Artist Statement

In 1970 the radical art and architecture group Ant Farm (1968–1978) travelled cross country in a “Media Van” shooting video and networking with other artists. Ant Farm Media Van v.08 (Time Capsule), an interactive sculpture made in 2008, invites users to leave a “donation” to a digital Time Capsule, but also functions as a small video theater showing works made in 1970. This on-going project migrates across time and space and intersects with new ubiquitous technologies.

  • Chip Lord is an American digital media artist currently teaching at UC Santa Cruz, US.  chiplord.net
