Tony Oursler at Redling Fine Art


Yesterday's Priests and Painters, creators of metaphysical interfaces, to today's digital corpus artists invested in Alien Abduction, beamed to the sky, hypnotized to recall, their fleshy meat bags generally stuck with probes, investigating "subjectively real memories of being taken secretly against one's will by apparently nonhuman entities."  According to Wikipedia. There's some complex point to be made here about our artists/priest/app-devs/conspiracists and networking us like an IT department to whatever etheric plane choosen. What's the difference between a dark theater and an alien abduction beside the cylindrical insert? "The contents of the abduction narrative often seem to vary with the home culture of the alleged abductee."
