Intermission: Dropping Your Camera Becomes High Art in "Oops"

by Patrick James

October 29, 2010

Beckman, who got the concept from Billy Rennekamp, describes the project thusly:

Somewhere between a home-video mixtape and a postmodern travelogue, "oops"—a ten-minute art video composed entirely of appropriated YouTube videos, seamlessly stitched together via a motif of camera drops—serves both as transportative adventure and metaphorical elucidation of YouTube itself (i.e. endless related videos), exemplifying the Internet's infinite repository of "throwaway" social documentation. 

Via Creative Review; credits for each of the appropriated clips can be found here.
