The Tate Channel

I have been enjoying the Tate Channel  -  an online collection of videos with artists of various shades. This is a rare and inspiring resource.   I say rare because these videos have been prepared with the context in mind, on the whole they are not mini documentaries, news reports or commercials, but are made for the web audience. The videos are very simple interviews (usually minus the interviewer) which allow the artists to talk in a very natural and open way.  Here is the deadpan world of John Wood and Paul Harrison, a pair of unusual video artists.
