Bold black letters stenciled across the sides of a battered wood crate identify it as having belonged to the HadCell Corporation. Spilling out through missing slats are abandoned computer monitors and keyboards, dusty disk drives, and other high-tech detritus, all linked by a nervelike maze of wires and tubing. Twitching and groaning, with lights flickering across the screens, these abandoned components resemble a cyborg made of secondhand parts.

Judith Barry has been actively exploring video since the mid-1970s. Her work has been shown extensively in North America and Europe. Brad Miskell is an artist and writer based in New York. Photo: Dan Hubp.
