“Downloading” features various Negativland members in a gilded Rococo frame. The images of Five Floptops are stripped into place like streams of data downloading from disparate sources. Does the frame go with the image? It doesn’t matter. The frame is more important. The frame is the media, and how it characterizes whatever we see and hear in ways that are wholly apart from reality.
