Cory Arcangel


Cory Arcangel works with appropriated media, including video games, exploring reconfigurations of material from popular culture. For example, to create “Super Mario Clouds”, Arcangel hacked a Mario Brothers game cartridge and removed all content except the clouds.  In “A Couple Thousand Short Films About Glenn Gould”, Arcangel used clips from Youtube to reconstruct Glenn Gould’s famous performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
