The Feeling of Power
1990, 8:42 min, color, stereo sound

Video Image for The Feeling of Power

"Beck’s new promotional purpose is evidently to reveal that image technology is a double-edged sword, with the potential to both reinforce and undermine the status quo. The purpose is also to make the case that inadequate establishment response to the AIDS crisis necessitates the utilization of the technology’s subversive and activist potentials. […] Beck manages to construct a substantial and complex treatise on the contrasts between traditional use of image technology and suburban American culture and the new uses that present conditions demand, as well as a provocative meditation on the myriad interrelations among commerce, technology, labor, American social organization, and the politics of race, gender and sexual orientation.” – Adam Knee
