"The lineage of luxury in art - from lapis lazuli, to bronze casting, gold plating or diamond encrusting -  extends now to graphics cards, ray-tracing, skin rendering, reflection mapping and to processor speeds, hyperthreading, render farms and the complex world of outsourcing, government subsidies or mineral extraction. It’s important and interesting! Curators take note!" This is good / the Ed Atkins also sounds good.

CGWTF: Simon Starling's Phantom Ride
"I was hoping that Simon Starling [would engage with CGI as a medium creatively]. But he didn't - he used it _invisibly_. CGI is always used invisibly. You're not supposed to see the seams. It's supposed to appear like it's not CGI in order to fool the eye and boggle the mind. Sadly (for me and probably no-one else) CGI was again denied the opportunity to do anything more than _facilitate_." I enjoyed Starling's piece, but this is astute and fair criticism. (I'm rather taken with Alan Warburton following his Spherical Harmonics at the Photographer's Gallery. All of CGWTF is very good.)

"Ryan" - YouTube - Screening Room
Remarkable, oscar-winning short; real interviews, and some incredible CGI character design. At the heart of it: a very sad story. Beautiful soundtrack, too.
