A dark mirror from Paik to Abrahams and Deck Oh Yeah!

For us the most interesting of Paik’s contemporary artistic cousins demonstrate that technology and art are both not only mirrors for reflecting back reality, but also hammers for shaping and, perhaps, compost for seeding it. That is, its objects, its infrastructure, visions, behaviors, and relations; these things are about us understanding the world and shaping it. They all point to a new understanding of individual, collective, and species level agency as artists and tool makers in this network of things.
