T E R R Y -F L A X T O N "Terry Flaxton has been an impassioned, indefatigable presence in British Independent Video for some time, during which he has assembled an impressive body of work encompassing powerful, polemical documentary and highly personal, poetic video art. What unites these separate strands is a strongly held belief in the medium's ability to change our image of the world - or at least that restricted view of it obtained through the television screen. In Flaxton's eyes, a faith in video's transforming potential burns undiminished. More to the point, in Flaxton's hands, much of the medium's radical promise goes some way towards being fulfilled."

"Terry Flaxton's shrewd and paradoxical installation "In Other People's Skins" contributes to the deconstruction of traditional video. The restless and versatile British filmmaker refuses usual interactivity, and displays, instead of a normal screen, a laid dinner table; then invites the viewer, through a very precise projection, to try to match the virtual guests' gestures. An unforeseeable and bewildering end follows." Techne Catalogue, Milan

"It was great to see your piece as it is supposed to be seen. Interactivity in the best sense: perhaps the only meaningful sense at this point in history." A fellow artist on seeing In Other People's Skins for the first time
