Video art has long been collected and exhibited by museums. But the concept of curating web videos—pieces made for viewing online—is not the art of choice for most museum walls. That’s why the YouTube Play: A Biennial of Creative Video is so exciting. It not only acknowledges the craft of these worthy artists and designers, but also recognizes the virality and share-ability of the medium.

More than 32,000 submissions rolled in, from which 125 videos were plucked for the shortlist by an all-star panel of jurors including the band “Animal Collective,” the filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, and the graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister—although I want to know how they could have possibly watched them all!
