Abstract

This book explores the wide-ranging implications of video art and video-based production in contemporary media culture. The book examines the explosive viral reach of moving image-based content and its infiltration into and impact on culture and everyday life. The chapters to this book analyze what is now a fourth decade of video practices as marked within and outside the margins of art production, networked interventions, projected spectacle, museum entombment, or 24/7 streaming. Intending to broaden, contest, and amplify the mediated space defined by its two predecessors, this volume investigates the ever-changing state of video’s deployment as examiner, tool, journal reportage, improvisation, witness, riff, leverage, and document.
