Technology as Territory: Video and Desire in Japan

Technology As Territory, 1987

Fremantle: Praxis, 1987

Peter Callas' works for this show were created during a year-long residency as video artist at the Shibuya store of Marui (department store). The advertising/consumer/art relationship is highly exploited as Asian and typical as compared to our Western critical and scrutinizing eye of the screen. Artistic morals are not questioned, either by the Japanese consumer market or, ironically, by the artist himself.
