Screens: Viewing Media Installation Art – Kate Mondloch – Google Books

Kate Mondloch on the use of screens as in the computer screen you’re looking at right now. Kate Mondloch is katee professor of contemporary art and theory at the University of Oregon.

She is author of the recently published Screens: Viewing Installation Artand is currently working on a new book about museum-based media art and feminist theory from to the present.

What kind of screens, and what do they have to do with installation art? The book focuses on the experience of viewing gallery-based artworks made with film, video, and computer screens, but I encourage readers to think much more broadly. Screen-mediated viewing existed well before the invention of still or moving photographic media.

However, as I argue in the book, an important shift occurs in art spectatorship when everyday cinematic and electronic screens are incorporated into installation artworks in the mids. This is transitional because how we see and interact with media technologies in everyday life outside of the art gallery mnodloch how we engage with such devices within the institutional context of the visual arts.

His work is compelling for getting us to notice neglected details about media interfaces that define so much of our daily lives.

It also asks us to bridge our experience of commercial media technologies and works of art—much like the media installations I examine in the book, they suggest that these two seemingly distinct experiences are in fact deeply entwined.


Screens is situated at the intersection of several fields—art, new media, and film, to name a few.

What is the biggest challenge in writing a book like this? But this is also what makes field-bending research so exciting. But the biggest challenge by far in writing about contemporary technologies, whether in relationship to art or anything else, is that they moneloch constantly. One of the biggest shifts since I completed the manuscript has been the increasing ubiquity of touch screen interfaces, from iPhones to in-flight entertainment systems.

As a reviewer said, Screens could theoretically be a continuous project, one that could be updated continually as artists engage new screen-based technologies. If you could choose one take-away point for readers, what would it be? My hope is that the book will encourage readers to think more deeply about the ways we interact with media screens, both in our everyday lives katte in certain scresns of contemporary art.

How many screens are surrounding you right now? Blog readers will undoubtedly find this interview through yet a similar series of screen-based interfaces. When we go to contemporary art museums we find ourselves surrounded by even moondloch screens.
