OUTER & INNER SPACE

Borrowing from the title of Andy Warhol’s 1965 double-screen film, “Outer and Inner Space”, this book explores how video art addresses the interplay between external reality and internal states of mind. Three recent video installations – by Pipilotti Rist, Shirin Seshat and Jane and Louise Wilson – are placed in the context of 40 influential early works from the late 1960s to mid-1980s. These pairings underscore both the change and the continuity in video art, from its rough-edged experimental origins to works that use sophisticated technology to create environments of image and sound.
