SCREEN DEEP edited by Julianne Pierce looks at the global phenomenon that is moving image in the artworld. In the last five years video art, formerly a marginal form, has become mainstream. Having moving image in an exhibition is now de rigueur, but critique of much of the vast output of video artists is still tentative. A great team of writers wade into this debate with gusto providing a panoramic view of the state of play from magisterial works to Second Life and MySpace. The blurring of distance between film and other forms of moving image is explored.

Playing Biennially: Experimenta PlaygroundDr Wendy Haslem, feature
Experimenta Playground, an international biennial exhibition of media art, marks Experimenta's 21-year commitment to innovation in both production and in promoting and exhibiting new media art throughout Australia and abroad.
With artworks that engage with the creative possibilities emerging from a dynamic interaction between the moving image, art and new technologies, each artist in the exhibition creatively expands the definition of play, performance and ritual. Here the revelation of technology and spatial features create new ways of appreciating the construction of fantasy.
Participating artists include : June Bum Park, Guillaume Reymond, Shu Lea Cheang, Hiraki Sawa and Tomoyuki Washio, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Madeleine Flynn, Tim Humphrey and Jesse Stevens, Golan Levin and Zachary Lieberman, Philip Worthington, Gavin Sade, Priscilla Bracks and Matthew Dwyer, Stelarc, Marina Abramovic, Kuang-Yu Tsui, Eugenio Ampudia and Robert Hughes.
