My guest on the show this week is British artist Christina Corfield. She has a new show opening this month at Johansson Projects in Oakland, CA. The show is called Follies of the Digital Arcade and it focuses on the United States at the turn of the 20th century, a time when the U.S. and much of the Western world were in the midst of an electric revolution. It was the time of dazzling world's fairs, Tesla and Edition, a time when people were fascinated, amazed and terrified by the wonder of electricity. It seemed that there were no problems that could not be solved, mysteries whose answers couldn't be uncovered or explained by the newest technological marvel. In her show, Christina explores this strange time in history through a video installation and watercolor illustrations. The works examine the ways that history and fiction, fact and myth, science and magic can all became intertwined.
