speaking of video...

i witnessed two of the most original video installation artists around, woody and steina vlaskus, (also founders of the kitchen [phillip glass, peter greenaway, brian eno, etc.]), at the experimental film program, evolution, in the leeds international film festival. most of their work is steeped in technology, and challenges preconcieved notions of video as art as performance. it changed my thinking of the medium, as well as (gasp!) art in general. enjoy: http://vasulka.org/

Mmm...I'm not sure if it's like this, per se. But here is a site I found interesting recently: jasch - codespace. He makes some objects for Max that I've been using lately.10/14/2003 1:48:43 AM

the work showed at the festival were (on video) examples of their installation work that they could not bring and set up (because of space, time, and money). however they did show several pieces that were stickly video projects. in the first session they talked more about how they melded the conceptual with the technical. in the second steina performed a piece called violin power, in which her violin controlled the actions of the video through midi. then they showed an early documentary oif their work with the kitchen and the sony portapak (one of the earliest commercial video cameras).10/14/2003 5:46:14 AM
