Video Art

  • Video art is a type of artwhich relies on moving pictures and comprises video and/or audio data.

  • Came into existence during the late 1960s and early 1970s as the new technology became available outside corporate broadcasting and is still practiced and has given rise to the use of video installations.

  • Video art can take many forms: recordings that are broadcast, viewed in galleries or other venues, or distributed as video tapes or DVD’s; sculptural installations, which may incorporate one or more television sets or video monitors, displaying ‘live’ or recorded images and sound; and performances in which video representations are included.

  • Key differences between video art and theatrical cinema is that video art does not necessarily rely on many of the conventions that define theatrical cinema.

  • Video art may not employ the use of actors, may contain no dialogue may have no discernible narrative or plot, or adhere to any of the other conventions that generally define motion pictures as entertainment.

  • This distinction is important, because it delineates video art not only from cinema but also from the subcategories where those definitions may become muddy (as in the case of avant garde cinema or short films).

Nam June Paik

  • Is a Korean Americanartist that has worked with a variety of media and is considered to be the founder of video art.

  • Paik is credited with an early usage (1974) of the term "electronic super highway" in application to telecommunications.

  • Began participating in the Neo-Dada art movement, known as Fluxus, which was inspired by the composer John Cage and his use of everyday sounds and noises in his music.

  • Known for making robots out of television sets. These were constructed using pieces of wire and metal, but later Paik used parts from radio and television sets.

  • She was born in 1936 in New York City. She began her career there as a sculptor. By 1968 she moved into what was then leading-edge territory: mixing performance with props and mediated images, situated outside in natural and/or industrial environments.
