Buzz Coastin: ‘eye here amerika spinning’

I’ve quietly enjoyed the work of Buzz Coastin off-site for a while, so I thought I’d share one of his more recent works with my fellow Disinfonauts.

Via Absurdist Video Art:

BUZZ COASTIN is one of the most prolific online video makers who specializes in taking the unlimited library of internet video (ranging from vlogs, online news, porn, as well as a vast array of audio sources) and mashing them together into an absurdist smorgasburg of sight and sound revealing both the absurdity of the content which is created by others, and the new process of the artist whose paintbrush  now only has to digitally dip into the overwhelming content which already exists.

  1. Hey, Buzz: who knew?!

    I’ll be watching the rest of your videos—nice work, man. Keep it up.

    • Love it! Keep it up Buzz! My video cut out at 2:20 by the way, anyone else experience this?

        yeah, sometimes eye get sloppy
        like this time
        but upon reflection
        another 2 min of nothing really should be part of the viewing experience
        if not simply for safety

    how this is supposed to be art is entirely lost on me. sound bytes and pixels with crappy electronic music? thats the art of a schizophrenic. this video is schizophrenic. disappoint.

      it was Joyce who pointed out that
      it’s art if it provokes a reaction &
      pornography if it don’t

    • well sir, you sure are rude over nothing. I think you mean its not “fine art” and I agree but not everyone can be a douche and wear a monocle while deriving their technique from previous successful artists just to impress your pretentious judgmental ass. Its editing and he is taking it to a new colorful direction. I like it and its giving me inspiration. Critique is also an art which you failed at “too mean”. Try listening to noise music, your head just might explode with disgust.

    that guy sucks!

  6. Wow Buzz, I had no idea!

    Am I watching someone getting a handy?

    I like it. I’ve stopped by Buzz’s videos from time to time. At different times I’ve been struck with moments where he’s playing toying with the foundations of human morality.

    Reciprocity/fairness

    Loyalty/ingroup

    care/harm

    respect/authority

    and finally sanctity/purity

    The last especially, Buzz toys with disgust and what’s considered normality is shown as impurity. Again and again I see normality revealed as disgust and impurity. Interestingly that’s a favorite of many artists. So yeah I’d consider this art. Hey, none of you might take it that way or maybe Buzz doesn’t even mean it to come across in that way. I’m just calling it as I see it.

    Buzz knows how to play with his “Chip Body”. “Nude Descending a Staircase” a la Marchel Du Champ……….Buzz is the new Papparazi of the Chip Body………how about “forged digital art” as a new meme for the art literati of the 21st century?
