You'll find a similar trajectory inspired by Any Ever, a show of work by video artist Ryan Trecartin. Dubbed "a glorious mess" by critic Christopher Knight, the show is composed of more than four hours of video dispersed throughout several rooms, each featuring various items of furniture. The disparate videos connect via themes, characters and a dazzling frenetic visual style. The work was created in conjunction with Lizzie Fitch over the last three years, and indeed, Trecartin often works in collaboration with friends. In an interview a few years ago, Trecartin said that he thinks of his work more as theater production or moviemaking rather than the output of a singular artist. Commenting on the fetishization of both art and artists, he said, "I think my friends and I don't fetishize things; instead we consume them and then puke them out." His glib characterization is amusing, and probably quite accurate, but it doesn't do justice to the mesmerizing impact of the work and its alignment with new senses of time, space and attention.
