Last night Senior Technical Project Manager, Marina Filiuhina and I attended the YouTube Play event live from the Guggenheim in New York City! We had a fabulous time celebrating the works of artists who have used YouTube as an avenue for sharing their artwork. Last night, YouTube took over the Guggenheim museum by projecting celebrated video art on almost every surface area of the architecture inside and outside. The night was full of live music performances, including a finale by the YouTube sensation and grammy award winning music group OK GO.
The event was streaming in real time on YouTube Live and can be watched along with all the fabulous artwork on http://www.youtube.com/play
I recommend the following jury selection works:
A technically amazing video that uses timelapse photography to make the real world look like a little toy world.
This piece embraces YouTube culture by crowd-sourcing artistic reenactments of the Dziga Vertov 1929 classic film Man With A Movie Camera
A funny remix of clips from Alice in Wonderland set to a pretty go hard rap song!
A lovely and emotive video that to me shows how beautifully connected the world is and our human actions.
There are so many incredible videos uploaded everyday by artists around the world. The curation you can find here is fantastic. I recommend starting with the jury selection for the creme de la creme of the lot.
Also an ongoing interactive exhibition of the selected works will be on display at the Guggenheim in New York City, Berlin, and Venice… so check it out and let us know what you think!
Of course, what would a YouTube event be without making videos! Check out Marina and I having fun at a video kiosk: WATCH US!!!
