The author focuses on the semiotics and sensorium of video installation as opposed to single-channel video works. Interestingly, at one point in her comparison between the two, she quotes critic Michael Rush on the anticipation of contemporary craze with Reality TV by single-channel, performative early video artists such as Vito Acconci and Bruce Nauman.
