Both Mali Morris
and Robert Holyhead ask these questions through the use of glow,like an intermediary filter,tactile colour calling up psychological feeling.
Usle uses this feeling as well, outer limits ,forbidden zones,but with added conductors.
Monumental and universal.

The physical presence of art has partially been replaced with the virtual aesthetic and intimacy of the computer screen. The transparencies of stain paintings mimic the the color and details of a computer screen where the light comes from behind and within rather then outside and in front. Whether conscious or not, the aesthetics of virtual reality have effected and replaced some of the physical and formal aspects of our criteria.
