Volume 7: Personas and Personalities
ASPECT Magazine is a biannual DVD magazine of new media art. Each issue highlights 5-10 artists working in new or experimental media, whose works are best documented in video or sound. Each work can be viewed with or without an additional commentator audio track. This volume of ASPECT features artists working with issues of identity and personality. For some, a constructed identity is an opportunity to explore personal or cultural issues of gender, accountability and culpability. Other artists make their own personality an integral part of their work and process. All the works in this issue examine the role of personal psychology in how we interact with others and our surroundings on an everyday basis. We are thrilled by the quality and diversity of work in this issue, and with the diverse ways in which the artists and commentators interpreted our open call. Enjoy. Artists included are CarianaCarianne, Anthony Goicolea, Sachiko Hayashi, Lynn Hershman, Christian Jankowski, Erik Levine, Kristin Lucas, Jill Magid, Adrianne Wortzel, and The Yes Men.
