Western Edge - Video from the Front

Poolside, 2003, pp. 52-57

Winnipeg: Video Pool Inc., 2003

Clive Holden reviews a curation of video art, Eternal Network - Video from the Western Front Archives, 1973 to 2001.

The mix of pre-digital video and digital video art shows a medium that has origins in performance art. Holden notes how new technologies result in new art forms. He doesn't see the old and new videos as opposing but a curation to show where video art has come from.
