Project Description

Girls For Rent

Since 1980 Mr O’Finn has re-purposed, re-contextualized, effected, and weaved appropriated media samples into “the dreams a television Might have”.  The work represents television both as a medium, message, and as a device of conscious and subconscious cultural significance. His work has screened on both coasts, including The Hirshhorn Museum of Art in Washington DC., as well as around the world; including The National Museum of Art in Poland, The Busan Film Festival in Korea, a Traveling Art project throughout Portugal, as well as a solo exhibition in Berlin Germany.

“The most tripped out and intelligent re-cuts of movie clips, commercials, and various other resources you can imagine…masterpieces… his work provides a superb example of the mash-up as de-contextualizing the medium from the message in order to re-conceptualize a mindful imagination”
~ The Reverend, Bavatuesdays
“O’Finn, living like a post-apocalyptic caveman… is like a madman watching and cheering at the collapse of the media machine.”
~ Madeleine Gallagher, Curator and Professor, Mass College of Art
“Feverishly edited encyclopedicaly strange video colleges…lively rivers, a liquid experience”
~ The Village Voice
“Donald’s editing is so hyper-intuitive that the culture shocks and time warps gel into a state of half vertigo and half trance.”
~ The Voice's Best of Video Art
