I fully admit that I don't quite understand video art but this piece is a lovely little bit of hypnotic decoration for your living room. Fireflies from John Frears has its basis in the work of Nobel prize-winning economist Thomas Schelling. The LED fireflies demonstrate that small changes in individual behavior can lead to big changes. The fireflies move around their environment to find the ideal temperature for their existence: too cold and they cluster, too hot and they spread out. The piece sells for $350 and ships in mid-August.
