Artists' Video from EAI at the Sagamore Hotel in Miami
The Sagamore Hotel 1671 Collins Avenue
Miami, Florida

On view during Art Basel Miami Beach
December, 2015

The special selection of media artworks for the public spaces of the Sagamore Hotel was drawn from EAI's extensive archive. The media artworks on display in the hotel presented formal, conceptual, or perceptual transformations of natural landscapes and environments. In works that range from the playful to the socially resonant, the artists investigate diverse notions of landscape, from transmutations of nature, the body, and everyday objects to the "media landscape" of today's televisual and digital cultures. Moving between abstraction and representation, the organic and the electronic, these works—which span five decades—also explore the materiality and meanings of video and digital media.
