Select an artist who is a leading practitioner of video or digital art. Find an example of his or her art in a museum, private collection, or traveling exhibition in the state of Texas. In fulfilling this assignment, please understand that digital technology is prevalent in many devices and tools that we use today, such as in everyday digital cameras. However, you are not looking for this ordinary usage of digital technology; rather, it is your assignment to locate an artist whose work is seen or presented to an audience through a video or digital medium. Please furnish (1) the name of the artist; (2) a photograph of the work in the Texas collection or exhibition; and (3) a URL address. (10 points)
