  3. 3. Bill Viola: Reflecting pool VR: Youve written a lot on the medium. How have you redefined your ideas of what video is, over the years? BV: Actually, technologically speaking, I dont think video is going to exist for too much longer. The technology is changing so rapidly that it simply wont be around in 20 years. Video with then be thought of as a limited practice with a finite life span, a medium that flourished briefly during the late 20th century and early 21st. As a young art student seated at his computer screen said to me, "Video? Oh yeah, thats my dads medium." Maybe "moving image" will eventually emerge as the overall genre label, as video and electronic forms continue to merge into the digital domain. The practice of video, however, the making of art with moving electronic images, will be around for a long time and continue to grow. Early on, the format was surprisingly perishable. As I prepared for this survey show I realized with shock that my old open-reel 1/2-inch tapes, stored as carefully as possible, are already unplayable, as are some of the copies I had made on 3/4-inch tape. In one case I had to work off a 3/4-inch dub of a 3/4-inch copy of a 1/2-inch tape; there was no other way to save that work. Lately, weve been transferring everything to digital Betacam, securing its continued life. For me, videos impermanence intensifies my sense that my own work is not about the medium per se, and yet that same impermanence also makes clear that, as a medium, video is very specifically tied to this particular moment in history.

  12. 12. “The artists instrument in 1983: A pocket computer that can be connected to any screen or projector or network. The housing contains also a colour video camera and a small colour monitor (perhaps even holo). The device also works as a tape recorder. You can talk to some programmes, they can understand simplified language. The words they understand appear on the screen as text. You can draw on it in colour with a light pen. The overall tone of the picture can be altered with a programmed transformation of the level of colour. If you want to save memory, after drawing a circle you can give the programme an idealisation command, and all it has to remember is the place of the centre and the radius. Motion pictures can be animated one frame at a time by making the desired changes in the previous image with a pen or by spoken commands and transferring the images to memory. Or by giving the elements of the image their trajectories and speeds.”keskiviikkona 27. tammikuuta 2010
