The desire to move viewers out of the role of passive observers and into the role of producers is one of the hallmarks of twentieth-century art. This tendency can be found in practices and projects ranging from El Lissitzky's exhibition designs to Allan Kaprow's happenings, from minimalist objects to installation art. More recently, this kind of participatory art has gone so far as to encourage and produce new social relationships. Guy Debord's celebrated argument that capitalism fragments the social bond has become the premise for much relational art seeking to challenge and provide alternatives to the discontents of contemporary life. This publication collects texts that place this artistic development in historical and theoretical context.

Light Reading(s): Visual Mix (2003) is a single channel video based on a live performance with a hand-held photocell that varies the flow of electric current according to the amount of light falling upon it. The resulting sound translation is sent through an assortment of custom sensors and vintage processors, generating a luminous single channel video projection and droning, delicate or scratchy surround sound.

Cat Mouse Trio is a 3-channel installation that uses multiple perspectives, unscripted choreography, and the art of play to explore how a multiple viewpoints revolve around an invisible locus.

Three videographers shot the video and assigned these rules: videotape one another, ignore the camera that is recording you, and keep the action moving.  The videographers act as both predator and prey across an urban terrain while simultaneously creating and documenting. A form of anti-choreography such that Cat Mouse Trio performs the video landscape and prompts viewers to form relationships between the three video screens.

JODI's ongoing performance project, The Folksomy Project, takes YouTube as source material, with the artists utilizing custom software to select and manipulate user-generated videos from the popular website. Armed with a virtual "juke-box" of video clips, JODI focuses on YouTube users love-hate relationship with new technologies, from iPod love ballads to laptop smashing. As with much of JODI's work, The Folksomy Project is a study in how online systems (dis)function.
