Deleuze and Guattari as VJay: Digital Art Machines

I would like to focus on relations between art and technology. Our digital machinic phylum transforms entirely the relationship between “art,” “images,” and social assemblages. Though Deleuze rarely addressed the digital transformation of our contemporary art machine, Guattari often did. My concern is to articulate “images” as Deleuze understood them in the Cinema books using the ritornello, proposed by Guattari in The Machinic Unconscious and in Thousand Plateaus, in order to explain what I call the “ecology of images.” I will focus on two contemporary pieces: the video Diaries (2006) by Tania Mouraud and I hate love stories (1989), a computer painting by Georgik.
