Video Art: not television, not experimental filmFor those who have remotely or no idea what I'm talking about, Video Art is a type of audiovisual art and art movement, that was born in the 60's and makes use of mainstream imagery and sound, but should not be confused with experimental cinema or video.Video Art: not television, not experimental film by O-Uaglione
Video Art is different from Film, because Video Art doesn't strictly need to make use of performers or characters, dialogues, or does not necessarily tell a story or has a plot or intends to narrate a story, like Film does. It's a more abstract use of the media or a an exploration of it and its boundaries.
Video Art comes in two forms:
Video Installation: the audiovisuals (multiple or not) are placed within a context, and they interact with a wide variety of (artistic or not) objects, such as traditional media, creating a whole interrelated environment, or
Single-channel: closer to a television broadcast, a video is screened on a sigle display.
