Les Levine: Transmedia, 1964 to 1974
This publication surveys Les Levine's output from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, a time when the artist was closely connected to the Toronto art scene. Widely acknowledged as a founder of media art, Levine would become known for developing new approaches to artmaking, establishing new categories such as “camera art," “disposable art," “media sculpture," “software art," “body control systems," and what he would term “Mott art." Constantly expanding the parameters of what could be understood as art, Levine's artworks addressed the conditions and experiences of a rapidly changing media landscape in ways that proved uniquely prescient of contemporary concerns and sensibilities.
