Personally I find it an art form which is hard to understand, but sometimes there are Video installations which i appreciate. For instance the Erszebet Baerveldt ..Requiem is one of the most fascinating video’s i know ( search it on Youtube). Gary Hill’s video’s are more direct. In many cases filmed at close range with an intriguing voice over make these video’s very direct. They are not beautiful but highly intriguing and once you have seen them you will remember them.
It is not easy to find publications on Gary Hill and even more …is a book a suitable medium to promote a video artist?..i do not think so, but what makes the publications on Gary Hill i have at www.ftn-books.com worthwhile is the way these are published and designed. Great collectable books on a great video artist.
