Creating Art Through Video

14 08 2007

I was doing quite a bit of research until the wee hours of the morning about video art and using video as a medium for art. I came up with quite a few interesting search results, but have really found very little in terms of using todays digital media and technology as a medium for this type of work. In fact the closest thing that I could really find was experimental film. While reading the wiki’s on these various topics I ended up surfing a lot of other wiki pages and coming across more interesting topics on the subject of video, but I could find no niche for much of the work that I am doing now.

Finally while surfing I came across a page that may have some of what I am looking for. That page was VideoArt.net. On this page I found a lot of other folks who are uploading their videos as a means of art. They are also expressing themselves in many different ways with their films such as musical films, silent films, avant-garde films and experimental films. So after hours of searching, watching and uploading I can see now the video art is really something that has a chance to take off!

So what I have done is put something together for my LOUD Tour TV show that I would like all of you to watch! This is a relatively short video that is intended to kick off this brand new project of mine. I would like to say that it is an original idea, but it appears as though it is a mish-mash of a bunch of ideas. Truly experimental, and hopefully artistic! So take a look at the video and tell me what you think!
