DESCRIPTION

A response to “Play”, the Guggenheim’s recent YouTube exhibition and exercise in co-branding, “Playlist” is about how people actually use online video today. It’s a peek at the “favorites” of a select group of artists, writers, and musicians; an exercise in sharing, taking place in the old-fashioned realm of actual public space. It doesn’t add anything new to the world--instead, it looks at the strange archival richness that’s already there on the Net.
