The Advent of Video Culture

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the historical and cultural impact of the development of video technologies, not only as a method of recording, but as a paradigmatic shift in the way that bodies were represented on screen. Video technologies introduced the immediate feedback loop, the real-time representation of self in real, architectural space and the simultaneous apparition of self in synthetic, screenic space, Such a loop has permeated twenty-first century culture and made the screen a destination for dance in the new millennium.

Keywords: video; architectural space; immediate feedback loop; recording; representation

Chapter.  8390 words.  Illustrated.
