Video Art Thinks Big: That’s Showbiz
I really enjoyed how much information this article provided on the vast medium that is video art. It cited examples of artist from the beginning of video art such as Vito Acconci to more recent times such as the main example from the article Ryan Trecartin. This article really opened up my eyes to a medium that is open to almost anything. there are few restrictions in video art and many opportunities for new ideas and new styles. It is a fairly new medium that has not been completely defined, there in no subject matter that is more prominent in the medium just as there in no specific length or form of projection, it is all up for grabs as shown by the various examples provided by the article, which i found very insightful and helpful in correcting my perceptions of what i thought video art could be.
