“And what about another field of video art where technology is active, the installation? The remarkable point was that the movement from the screen to the room was constantly a movement from the room back into the screen at the same time. The intrusive aspect of a multi-screen presentation, a video-sculpture and sometimes a video installation was ultimately feedbacked onto the screen in the course/process of viewing. This ultimate centring of vision contains one of the fundamental differences compared to traditional, three-dimensional works of plastic art. (…) They integrate the observer into what is happening – interactively – gently but inescapably, and develop a “tuned space” in the musical sense, in which the individual elements join together into a harmonic/rhythmic cadence.” (Norbert Nowotsch)

(just only a few more common places…)
- video is image and sound
experiencing space and time
mixing documentary, experimental and fictional aspects
visual improvisation & “Illuminated Music”
holistic approach
- art crosses all borders and returns to society, audience, through “conceptual real” (Bonito Oliva)
- the mixed forms… a sophisticated and energetic combination of poetic and moving elements (Wulf
Herzogenrath)
- endless re-production of metaphors
implying strata of meanings (impurity of meaning)
levels of representation/structures of signification
opening of cultural codes
discoursiveness
- identifying, of course, such characteristic as:
presence at “theatre” or preoccupation with time (impermanence, fluctuations) (Crimp’s postmodernism)
“eruption of language” (Owens’ postmodernism)
“expanded field” (Krauss’ postmodernism)
lessons from: - l’ivresse de Bill Viola
- traverse chirurgicale de Peter Campus
- Nam June Paik’s “Kharma no.7”
(and so on…)
