CORY ARCANGEL ALL THE SMALL THINGS
New York-based artist Cory Arcangel (born 1978) is a leading exponent of technology-based art, drawn to video games and software for their ability to rapidly formulate new communities and traditions and, equally, their speed of obsolescence. His work bridges the highbrow and the lowbrow, popular culture and art. With All The Small Things, Arcangel presents media and cultural references that are widely accessible and known to the masses, in novel and unorthodox ways. Arcangel is a firm believer in making his work available and freely shares many of his video and code-based works on the Internet. His practice has gained him an immense online presence and following that is both independent of and outside the mainstream fine art world. This first comprehensive monograph was designed in close cooperation with the artist.
