Video Art In the Visual Environment.

 Documentation of art events, actions and performances:

Video art as a way to acknowledge a dead end.
The ways out are : cinema, animation, video performance, video installation.

Video performance

The camera is an extension of a performer’s body.
The viewer identifies with the performer or becomes the object for his/hers interest and camera.
The camera is an observer with which the viewer also identifies.
The real action is cut by the compulsive point of view.

Video installation.
Using a monitor, video sculpture becomes a moving surface. Monitors as part of the environment - interaction of the physical and virtual worlds. Installations will eventually consist only of monitors - it is only a question of time.
As projection
gives birth to the paradox of stationary projection and movable viewer. The illusion is materialized as an element of architecture.
Using multimedia - a collision of languages serves as a means of making out the boundaries.

Performance in the video installation environment - a self-demonstration of video language.
