Reality Cinema/Live Video, an exhibit by Jan Baracz, was on display at Art in General from September 27 – December 13, 2008. In it, Baracz addressed the "magic" power of the electronic mediation in recording technologies. His project took up the conventions of cinema and probed its history of collective reception. Employing curiosity and voyeurism, Reality Cinema/Live Video playfully tested the tendency to project narratives on everything one sees.
