Jordan Crandall is an outstanding representative of a new generation of media artists and theorists who are keenly aware of the fact that today, bodies and physical movements are no longer objects of representation, but products of data processing. This volume contains a documentation and essays on Crandall's seven-part video installation Drive, a work that combines traditional film technologies and computerized military technologies for tracking, identifying and targeting. To depict movement, these technologies no longer adhere to the conventions of cinema, but collate and process computer data from thermal imaging devices or night-vision optical devices, which are then shown on screen as movement. Consequently, movements are not so much depicted as tracked. When military tracking technologies are a pplied to people, these become objects of an ultimately erotic desire. Drive observes the new human relationships that develop through a structure otherwise associated with a hunter observing his prey. The artist: Jordan Crandall, born 1958 in Detroit, Michigan. Editor of the art forum Blast, director of X Art Foundation in New York. Visiting professor at the Ecole Nationale SupÚrieure des Beaux-Arts and the architecture faculty at Columbia University NYC. Represented at documenta X, 1997.
