Employing readymade digital technology as his primary medium, New York–based artist Cory Arcangel applies a hacker’s sensibility to a wide range of work that incorporates web, video, sound, performance, and photography. Arcangel’s appropriated source materials—ranging from obsolete video games to YouTube clips, and from Hollywood films to underground music—all become fodder for his visual and sensorial modifications. His artistic pursuits live as witty and informative interventions into contemporary culture at a time when we witness its rapid and frequent obsolescence before our eyes.
