Ean White is the kind of artist who makes talking about kinds of artists absurd. To list the many media he works in would almost be beside the point, namely, his ability to materialize complex ideas by any and all means necessary, as sparsely or densely as the occasion demands. Images that I remember range in scope from frying a transducer inside a pancake, to mechanically dragging groups of seated audience members across the floor, to designing a fireworks [sic] behind an aria-singing soprano. But you have to spend time with his images; theyre not designed for instant gratification.
