This week's selection comes via the ever magnificent ubu.com which now features embeddable vids. I'm finding myself progressively getting into patterns and particularly plaids, and this piece, "Video Ravings" from 2002 by Cory Arcangel has some seriously hypnotic pattern going on. I suppose a warning should be given to those who are prone to epileptic fits. This work might trigger one.
This work is relevant in light of the burgeoning blog coverage of the Retro Arcade Museum. Here's a little right up over at Reclaimed Home. I haven't made it over there yet, but it sounds like a guilty pleasure.
