Video Space/Video Time: The Electronic Image and Portable Video

by Ron Burnett

Mirror Machine: Video and Identity, 1995, pp. 142-183

Toronto: YYZ Books, 1995

Ron Burnett discusses video media in terms of its history, its relationship to radio (versus television), subjectivity, content, narrativity, and artistic/non artistic means of production. Overall his concern is with video as mode of communication; video, to paraphrase his words, creates a space in the present, by using images recorded in the past.
