The past decade we got introduced to video and digital artists like Ryan Trecartin and Ed Atkins. Recently, the Internet gave birth to another child, Brian Tessler
, who doesn’t call himself an artist, nor is he called one. A tradition of digitized art for these people is no longer a mere fetish; it is a long-lusted curious gaze into virtual abyss. Brian his co-project with Jon Baken, called Cool 3D World
, is labeled as ‘entertainment website’ and is already a hit on the Internet. Many describe it as a virtual nightmare, infused by LSD, where anything can happen. Surreal, absurd, yet hypnotic – Brian’s work illustrates the distorted notion of living.
