The tools for creating video-related art works are nowadays pretty much limitless compared to the sixties, when video art
started using videotapes and recorders. This last decade alone, with
its numerous technological developments, like better software, high
quality cameras and affordable hardware, offered many different methods for artists to create contemporary video art.
Technological advances have always been an impulse for art to move into new directions, discover different ways and to explore alternatives.
This month’s program on the Streaming Festival is focusing on some not-your-daily type of films, and
on the techniques used during the filming and editing process, from the
tiltshift technique to create a miniature-style film, to a timelapse
adventure using ants in a scanner, to the manipulated images in Beauté and the photographic portrayal of landscapes.
