I love that Rist piece. I was just recently at MOMA and saw it for the first time.

While I'm glad to have a excerpt on the web to remember it by, it would be a shame to have been introduced to it that way. There are several "surprises" in the piece and the excerpt doesn't catch them all, nor does it get the pace right for those it does contain. Also, part of the fun of the piece is seeing it in the context of an art museum.

Considerations like these may be why some video artists prefer not to deliver to the web.
