This is an interview Corina MacDonald did with me about my research-creation project VIDEO CACHE, for VIDEO CACHE took place on November 24, 2010 at Groupe intervention video. It was a public screening of ten works selected by Penny McCann from the SAW Video Mediatheque collection. The Mediatheque is Canada’s first large-scale attempt to use the web as a ‘living archive’ –its server crashed in 2009 and the project has been offline since. VIDEO CACHE was also a month-long online exhibit showcasing these ten works, carefully documented and recontextualised for the web. The documentation for VIDEO CACHE remains online, and the event catalogue is available via print-on-demand.
