Best of PXL This Festivals 13-16

PixelVision was a toy black-and-white video system of the late 80s that artists have used since for its low resolution, which leaves much to the imagination. Stephen Rose's fairly-tale-like Souvenir (2003) tells its story with tiny figurines in a way appropriate to the format, as is a little girl's out-of-focus exploration of a flower's structure in Juniper Woodbury's handheld About Flowers. In Ross Craig's clever Dogma 95 parody, PXL Manifesto, two brothers state their principles (“no processing of sound”). Some of the other videos are more eclectic and ambitious, using multiple techniques at the risk of incoherence. 89 min.
