Review by Ceci Moss, first posted Friday 06 August 2010
Ceci Moss invites you to complete her review by filling out the appropriate terms in the Mad Lib™ below:
Found media are a favorite subject of Internet artists, who often evoke the ACTION FIGURE of the Web by sampling oddities from its less traveled paths. Many of Dullaart's peers seek out specimens of "CARTOON CHARACTER style," a term coined by artist ROCK STAR to describe media that look naive, crude, or COLOR. Dullaart's Readymades, however, demonstrate his interest in what might be called "default" style - the bland TYPE OF FURNITURE of sans serif text and soulless stock photography that frame ads for some of the most ADJECTIVE search terms (FAMOUS PERSON, BATHROOM ITEM, pornography), baring the SINGULAR NOUN of the internet's popular use.
That is to say, to get the joke, one must get the SINGULAR NOUN that a work of time-based media could be thought of as an TYPE OF FOOD spinning in space—no easy task as time is notoriously difficult to represent as a thing.
What should be a EXCLAMATION for the eyes becomes increasingly, violently agitated--an accidental psychedelic BODY PART. This ITEM OF SPORTS EQUIPMENT is recommended to anyone who uses a digital zoom or similar enhancement features in a camera: it's a Dorian Gray portrait of that pretty, fake TYPE OF FLOWER you are presenting to the public. Instead of the aging in the Gray painting, Vierkant VERB the bicubic corruption inherent in attempts to stabilize a changing reality. Paradoxically (and unlike the Gray), the digital noise is ultimately more aesthetically pleasing than TV SHOW.
