De Kunstenaars

"Lightness?" january - march 2012

Born in 1957 in the USA. Lives and works in New York.

Tony Oursler has been using the medium of film to create his own unique sculptural aesthetic, taking the images out of the television box and making them function in three-dimensional space. A recurrent theme in his work is the way in which visual technologies influence and even modify our social and psychological selves. His practice continuously engages with popular culture and questions how mechanical reproduction systems, like photography, film and television, have come to dictate not only the way we see the world, but also the ways that images are constructed.
