Television soap operas might be on the way out, but serial interpersonal drama will never die. Enter the video chat room, where not everyone is young, but they are most certainly restless for a soapy good time. The artist Frances Stark spent time in online chat worlds and pieced together a serialized soap opera based on her discussions of topics such as flirting, sex, history, and politics. The resulting feature-length animation, My Best Thing, depicts the drama and the desperation via Lego-like characters. Through the end of January.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: Oct. 14. Continues through Jan. 31, 2011
