Pixel side of life

On the pixel side of this blog there are two major art events that attracted my attention in a big way. The first one being Marina Abramovic's retrospective in MoMa. And the other one is Banksy's mocumentary Exit through the gift shop.

Completely different in both substantive and emotional effects, these two artists however have re-defined, in the span of over a quarter of century, what art is and how we perceive it. More over, they have re-defined the medium of art; Marina focuses on a human body, her own in many cases, and Banksy's fascination is with our body as a society. What makes these two artist share a common DNA is that both have made the viewer as much part of the art experience as the piece of work itself.
