Video art is undoubtedly the great art of this century, on this new era that begins full of transformed potential, challenging new ways for society. The multiplicity of forms which video art contains demonstrates the versatility of this artistic medium , adapting to the location and time in there particular way of being: the same piece seems to change when it is presented in different places and in different contexts.
