The YouTube Play

"Wonderland Mafia is meant to illustrate a disjointed amalgamation of the media one encounters in adulthood verses childhood. Juxtaposition is presented between contrasting elements, referencing the phenomena of rapid textural encrustation in the world of new media. This marriage of appropriated content, both classical and modern, is intended to activate the viewer's associative memory, inducing personal reflection upon their collective media experience."

The Youtube Play sees The Guggenheim collaberating with the internet phenomenon which is youtube. It is a chance for artists to transform, giving the opportunity to challenge themselves and the function of the museum. The idea is based on the exploration of new digital media and to see how it functions in the museum setting. This doesn't just mean sampling, or buffering videos, it is an incredibly creative process.
