EAI and The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach presented Screen Play: Moving Image Art, a special exhibition of moving image artworks for the public spaces of the hotel during Art Basel Miami Beach. Screen Play, guest curated by Lori Zippay, EAI's Executive Director, brought together video, film, and digital artworks drawn from the EAI collection across six decades. These works highlighted the cross-disciplinary relation of the moving image to other artistic media and forms—performance, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture—while also exploring the distinctive vocabularies of video, film, and digital media. The public encountered artists' moving image works in multiple public spaces of the hotel, as well as a dedicated "EAI TV Channel" for the hotel guest rooms. Screen Play featured moving image works by artists including Michael Bell-Smith, Takeshi Murata, Leslie Thornton, Jacolby Satterwhite, Joan Jonas, Merce Cunningham, Alex Hubbard, Dara Birnbaum, Shana Moulton, Lawrence Weiner, Steina, and John Baldessari.

This program looks at Steina's earliest video works, produced in the 1970s and early '80s. After producing a pioneering body of work with Woody Vasulka at the beginning of the decade, Steina pursued the electronic interrelation of sound and image; the use of mechanized, pre-programmed image devices for explorations of perception, space, and modes of seeing. The program includes Orbital Obsessions, Steina's mesmerizing meditation on time, space, movement and the "mechanized decision-making of instruments"; Flux, a frenetic experiment in perceptual abstraction, created with lightening fast video switching, footage of flowing water and video noise; Summer Salt, a mechanically and electronically mediated exploration of the Southwestern landscape; and Steina's unconventional self-portrait, Violin Power, described by the artist as a "a demo tape on how to play video on the violin."

EAI presented a live performance event and video screening featuring three new art collectives who re-activate the lo-fi. Cory Arcangel and Alex Galloway from Beige and Radical Software Group demonstrated the subversive genre of video game hacking. Video work by Forcefield and a live music performance from Termination Gnome galvanized obsolete analogue signal-processors and defunct electronics. With psychedelic ebullience, Paper Rad synthesized and re-staged popular material from the Internet, television, video games, and advertising. An analogous era of analogue synthesis was bridged by rarely screened video from technical pioneers of the 1960s and 70s.
