Video art

DEFINITION

Originating in 1965 with Korean born Naim June Paik, it is a technology medium of capturing live events and turning them into visual, often television-type, presentations that are incorporated with Performance Art and Installations. Paik started by making tapes on a portable Sony camera and showing them a few hours later at Cafe a Go Go in New York City's Greenwich Village. An example of Video Art is "Aransas" by Frank Gillette, which is a six-monitor video installation of the swampy landscape of Aransas, a county in Texas. Other Video Artists include Vito Acconci, Bruce Nauman, Tony Oursler and Rebecca Horn. Sources: Robert Atkins, "ART SPEAK"; AskART dabase; (LPD)
