As part of our critical forum, Video Art in the Internet Era, we asked a series of artists, curators and video brains to send us "video letters" responding to the provocation of our critical forum: how can video artists orient themselves towards or against the complex backdrop of networked technology, smart phones and prosumers of our current world?

Skip Blumberg responded with a direct address to the festival audience to rebel against the screen. This is a reference to his recent manifesto, which can be read on his website here:

Skip Blumberg is an avid screen user and an active digital producer, camcorder reporter, and video pioneer, with hundreds of movies on-line, on TV channels, in museums, libraries, and universities around the world. His latest movie is Growing Up Bonobo, an x-rated short about an endangered species.
