At your service: Escaping the Progress Trap

Aurora Picture Show, a microcinema in Houston, Texas has released a collection of "informational videos by artists who use recent technological tools for purposes other than what they were designed to do and, in some instances, in direct opposition to their intended use." The title of the DVD is At your service: Escaping the Progress Trap and it is included with the Spring '08 issue of Art Lies Contemporary Art Magazine. The videos are also available on line at the Art Lies website and offer a challenging, funny and moving take on progress. See them if you think art can bring you to your senses. See them if you don't.
