More Video Art Please

I remember the good ol' days. Video art was categorised as multimedia and using a computer to do anything apart from your CV had to be kept top secret. How times have changed. Today, video is inescapable and as ubiquitous as the LCD screen. How many inches is yours? Art galleries (the epitome of conservatism) even have screens promoting what videos are on show. Galleries have gone into a video frenzy. Suddenly projectors are cheap, freight and shipping of artworks non-existent and you can fill an entire gallery with one piece and a bench. Galleries have it made. Overheads have been reduced; artist fees turned to smoke and a bottomless pit of eager artists have backed up the s-bend ready to put out at all costs.
