"Abundantly illustrated with frames and sequences, Video Art offers a history of the medium seen through the perspectives of its early practitioners - such as Bruce Nauman and Vito Acconci, who used the video camera as an extension of their own bodies - through the vast array of conceptual, political, personal and lyrical installations of the 1980s and 1990s by such artists as Gary Hill, Bill Viola, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Mary Lucier and Michal Rovner, in which the possibilities of narrative were expanded, to the present digital revolution. In this postmedium age, artists from Pierre Huyghe, Douglas Gordon, Rodney Graham and Doug Aitken to Eija-Liisa Ahtila and Lynn Hershman are exploring the hybridization of technology, combining and recombining video with a vast array of other materials - digital video, film, DVD, computer art, CD-roms, graphics, animation and virtual reality - to form new artistic expressions."--BOOK JACKET.
