Ways of Something is a collaborative re-make in four episodes of John Berger’s influential 1972 documentary “Ways of Seeing,” which explored the hidden forces of power, wealth, and desire at work in traditional notions of art. For Ways of Something, Mills crowd-sourced with over 115 digital and new media artists to produce minute long videos inspired by each minute of the original, producing an amazing homage that takes the viewer on a tour art in a post-internet age.
