[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Nigel Helyer — Hybrid

Artist Statement

Artists who work in hybrid cultural forms do not have an adequate medium of representation or discourse which can provide a mechanism for a retrospective viewing and contemplation of the full complexity of the work. The conventional cultural venues are no longer able to contain, or provide for emergent forms of social and cultural interaction. Hybrid is a CD-ROM system for visual artists capable of providing a virtual venue for exhibition materials, artists’ work, concepts and biographical details.
