Joy RideEvolDiamond: The 8 LightsL7–L5

The early videos of Tony Oursler, who became famous in the 1990s with his suggestive video sculptures, are low tech experiments with model scenery that is kept consciously simple, like EVOL or Joy Ride™. A voice is the element that defines all these scenarios, it speaks in the spaces that Oursler develops as a scene for his sexual-psychological fantasies. In Diamond: The 8 Lights, these strategies culminate in a criminological guessing game.
