Douglas Davis

Works (excerpts)Seven Thoughts

Already early on, media artist Douglas Davis had the global dimension in view—a dimension that art production is forced to confront due to the possibilities of technology. In his performance Seven Thoughts, he plays with satellite communication from the Astrodome stadium in Houston. In additional works as well, for example The Last Nine Minutes (1977), he also deals with transmission, signal, and (the aporia of) interactivity.
